They were right the last time round so I think they might be right again. Interesting to see Khedira start after being left out the last time round. I hope Medran gets a run out and also Burgui. This game is meaningless as we will play Atleti in like 3/4 days so hopefully none of our key players get injured

Carlo Ancelotti spoke in Warsaw ahead of Real Madrid's tie with Fiorentina this evening. Amongst the subjects touched upon were Toni Kroos, James Rodríguez, Keylor Navas and summer signings.

Any more signings?

“It's done. We're not looking to make any more signings”.

How will you fit in Xabi, Kroos and Modric? Are you just going to play with two midfielders?

“The three of them can play fine. They have the skill and ability to not have any problems playing together. They're three midfielders with different characteristics and they don't have any problem playing together”.

What's the situation with Khedira and Di Maria?

“Nothing has changed. They're Real Madrid players. I chose other players for the European Supercup. Only Kroos played from among those who arrived on 5 August. Today it would be good for them to get some game time and improve their fitness”.

What do you make of Fiorentina?

They're a compact side. I think it will be a high quality game. The only players who can't play are Isco and Modric, who didn't travel, Bale who has a back issue, and Pepe who has a calf problem. We won't take any chances with them. Cristiano is fine, and will probably play a half. He'll be ready for the Supercopa.

Will Keylor Navas play?

Today's an important day for Keylor, who's going to get some game time. He's in perfect shape and it's good for him to play today and we'll make the decision on who plays in the Supercopa de España later on”.

Is it a good idea to have this game only three days before the Supercopa?

It's a friendly and it's good for us because we have players who haven't played yet given they returned late. It's not a bad thing to prepare for the Supercopa. It's good for the forthcoming season.

HT

okish half. not much intensity

The midfield combo is as bad as I expected. Front three playing well, just need someone in the box when we have the ball in and around the box. Defence is playing well too especially Marcelo. Xabi at fault for the goal with his best Gerrard impression

FT

Fiorentina with the win. Xabi at fault for the first and Arbeloa/Nacho for the second. We need more players in the box when we have the ball on the wings

Kroos with another great game. DiMaria missed a 1v1 but other than that we didn't have that many chances bar Benzemas disallowed goal. Fiorentina also did not create much, scored two against the run of play

All in all we defended well but attacking could've been better especially the midfielders who weren't involved at all

oh and Illarra ffs :bow: stick him at cm and he will dissapoint stick him at cdm and he will excel. 100% pass accuracy Proud
