Asked to look forward to Bayern, the coach refused to comment on whether he would use the same starting 11 as the one that beat Osasuna 4-0 this evening. He did explicitly state however that if fit, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will start together on Tuesday. And he expects they will all be ready to play. Ancelotti would not confirm whether or not Isco will be the player dropped to make space for the expected return of Bale (who will be fit after a bout of flu that left him "very weak") merely commenting that he had not decided on his line-up yet.
"We are going to Munich to attack, not defend. I have absolute confidence in these players."
Ancelotti also stated he was grateful for the chance to rest some players this evening. He found the match entertaining but did not think it had been physically hard on his players.
And finally, commenting briefly on a question that has several European Clubs interested - where is Zinedine Zidane going? - he merely remarked that he did not know.
