Ancelotti said during the press conference for the match: “We no longer have the Tuesday match in our minds, as well as the second leg. Talking about that match today means changing the focus on what we want to do tomorrow.”
He added: “Courtois will play tomorrow, and Vinicius will also play. I don’t know if he will be essential, but he will play. Tomorrow’s team will be very competitive. It is natural that players do not want to take risks, but tomorrow’s match requires a lot from us because the opposing team plays permanently.”
He continued: “We will try to win tomorrow with the best possible team, I want to keep the tired players. Those who are healthy will be available”.
And he continued: “At this moment, Vinicius, if he is not the best, he is present. He contributes a lot and is very decisive in assists and goals, and we hope that he can continue.”
