Ancelotti said, Friday, April 29, during the press conference against Espanyol: “Mbappe?! The coaches cannot tell the whole truth in a press conference. At the moment, the madridistas are thinking about two things: winning tomorrow and winning on Wednesday, and we – the players and the coaching staff – We’re thinking the same thing.”
Real Madrid will meet, on Saturday, April 30, with Espanyol in the 34th round of the Spanish first division league “La Liga”, and “Merengi” needs one point to ensure winning the title 4 rounds before the end of the competition.
The royal team also awaits an important confrontation on Wednesday, May 4, as it hosts Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg, seeking to achieve the uprising after losing the first leg 4-3, in order to qualify for the Champions League final.
