Ramos appears to be set to start Real's mach against Valencia, and Ancelotti pretty much confirmed it.

Sergio Ramos is fine, he just needs to train with the squad today, and he will. We decided to see how well he trains and then make a final decision right after. We won't take any risks.

Valencia will be a tough challenge, says Real's coach.

They've played well, and they have changed their style as well. We need to be careful because this will be a very tough match. This is a very important game to stay on top of the table, I don't think this will be a crucial game in terms of the title, but it will be very tough. Winning it would be big.

Real Madrid will play against Atlético in the Copa del Rey, but Ancelotti doesn't want to give up on the domestic cup so soon.

Our priority is tomorrow's match, this is not the right time to take chances with injuries, we will play those who will not be risking injuries. We will need to make some rotations throughout the month, that way we will avoid injuries and keep our roster motivated, we need all the players, and we will need to compete well in all competitions.

Los Blancos lost against Milan, but they aren't too worried.

No, we don't care about how that game ended, we completed a good training session right before that match in order to be ready for tomorrow's game, so losing against Milan will not make it tougher for us.

Jesé has showed some lack of rhythm since he made his return, but it's all normal, according to Ancelotti.

Jesé has recovered completely now. He will be very useful this season, no question about it.
