Asked about what Madrid were missing to be labelled as favourites, Ancelotti said: “There is nothing missing, but nobody can say that they are going to win because the Champions League is very difficult. Not everyone can compete, you need a lot of quality, experience, personality. That’s why I said that this team can compete.”

Chelsea facing uphill battle
Chelsea beat Southampton 6-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, but head coach Thomas Tuchel acknowledges that his side are up against it in Madrid.
“It’s one of the biggest challenges to perform as an away team at the Bernabéu. If you have to win by at least two goals, it is very difficult, almost impossible. We need to overperform,” the German coach said.
“We never manage our input and effort by chances we have for a result, we never did and will not start tomorrow by giving less because it’s very unlikely we will make it.
“It’s unlikely, but we will try, we will play to our full limit. It’s a big night and a big match and we wll try to be in better shape and in a better condition than in the first leg,” he added.
César Azpilicueta is available for Tuchel after recovering from covid-19. Romelu Lukaku will miss the clash with an Achilles injury. Callum Hudson-Odoi is also sidelined with an Achilles injury and midfielder Ross Barkley is out through illness.
