Real Madrid will have a tough challenge this Sunday when they face Barcelona for LaLiga Santander. The Spanish derby finds Carlo Ancelotti's team in a moment of awakening after a lukewarm start to the season. They beat Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 and arrive motivated.

"My feeling, before the game, is worry, sometimes fear, because if you are not afraid you face the lion thinking it is a cat, so it is a positive feeling", said Ancelotti at the press conference prior to the match on Sunday.

But he also faces the game, "with the necessary confidence because I have a strong team, with high-quality players, not only physical and technical, but above all mental", said the Merengue coach. Ancelotti considers this classic “a special match”, but does not believe that it will be crucial for the championship.

"They are not three more decisive points," he said, insisting that "we have to fight many points, not only against Barcelona, if you want to win La Liga". Ancelotti did not want to reveal how he will play, but said that "we are going to recover Eden Hazard and Dani Carvajal", who come out of injury, admitting that it will be difficult for them to start on the field.
