New, comments

The Italian coach addressed the media the day before visiting Getafe.

Ancelotti spoke about the team selection, some of his players and also the rising expectations.

Right now all the games are difficult, especially away from home. It's hard to tell how we're going to be in April. We need to prepare the game properly because we're going to face a tough team.

Karim Benzema is finally playing well. Ancelotti discussed his former and also his potential renewal with the club.

We're very happy with Karim. He's playing well. His renewal is something the club has to deal with.

Raphael Varane returned to the team last Tuesday. And his knee is alright.

His knee is fine. He is ready to play but he will not start.

Ancelotti also dealt with questions about Isco.

Isco's problems are just a tactical matter. It's not easy for him under a 4-3-3. Still, he played in Benzema's position against Atlético and did well. He could play in the midfield for some games, but always in a 4-3-3.
