Carlo Ancelotti announced that he will not make rotations for Sunday's match against Getafe.

Tomorrow we will play with the same team because we don't need to make rotations right now. The players are fine, and we only have Modric and Pepe out. Some players need to improve their condition a little bit, but Cristiano Ronaldo is not one of them. We don't have a thin roster, Kroos and Cristiano Ronaldo are important and we need them, when they need some rest they will get it.

Ancelotti spoke about Real's attitude against Atlético.

I don't believe we were soft. I saw a team playing with a lot of intensity. Isco played great, just like the others.

The Italian coach addressed Getafe's form as well.

We're visiting Getafe with the same good attitude as always. They just changed their coach and they need the three points, they work well and it will not be easy. It's an early kick-off and we are not used to that, but we want to keep leading the table.

Real Madrid were knocked out on Keylor Navas' competition, but the Costa Rican will still get some playing time.

Keylor is going to play some matches, just like he has done so far.

Ancelotti doesn't believe Real's attitude was not proper.

We have not started January on the right foot. We have made some mistakes but I don't believe our attitude was bad.
