Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is confident that the schedule that Los Blancos have will see them go top of La Liga. He also answered questions about the resignation of Barcelona president Sandro Rosell saying:

“I don’t like talking about the Barcelona squad, and whether the resignation affects it or not. I only think about my squad, the Real Madrid squad. We have to respect the decisions made by any club, including those made by Barcelona.”

“Our schedule gives us the chance to go top. That’s important having been six points adrift. Granada is doing a good job. It’s on a good run of form right now,” said the Real Madrid coach.

The Italian also gave some hints as to the squad he would field today:”Di María will play alongside Xabi Alonso and Modric tomorrow. He’s playing well and I plan to field the three of them.
