The kit colour, however, looks a bit different in official video/photos with the players.
Per ABC, Ancelotti has told Real Madrid players on several occasions that physically strongest players are dominating football at the moment and he wants Real Madrid to be the same. Further, Carlo told Hazard that he has to be more effective, if he is to be a starter. According to AS, Hazard’s role will be determined if he is a starter against Valencia or not.

What would you choose for the Valencia game?
