Vinicius’ comments.

Vinicius has commented about Carlo Ancelotti after yesterday’s game:

Ancelotti always asks me to score more goals and to be focused on the game. Sometimes I’m not successful and he always shouts from the bench ‘I’m gonna take you off!’ to make me stay focused (laughs).”

Changes in the Super League

  • No permanent clubs.
  • Clubs qualify based on their domestic performances.
  • 20 clubs and all European Leagues will be given a chance to qualify.
  • A second division of the league with 20 other teams.

Ancelotti’s doubts for El Clásico

According to Miguel Diaz from COPE, Ancelotti has two doubts in the starting eleven for the game against Barcelona:

  • Lucaz Vazquez or Nacho in the right-back position;
  • Rodrygo or Valverde in the right-wing.

It has also been reported that Benzema suffered a knock in the game against Shakhtar, but apparently he is not a doubt for El Clásico.
