Real Madrid face Liverpool on May 28.

Carlo Ancelotti is enjoying his football this season. The Italian manager secured the La Liga title with four games left to play and guided Real Madrid to the Champions League final.

His side on Thursday beat Levante 6-0 in an excellent display. A game dominated by Madrid stars sending Levante to relegation.

Ancelotti after the match was asked how Real Madrid will set up for the final against Liverpool. His response was covered by Diario AS.

“4-3-3. Sometimes it could end up as a 4-4-2. I don’t think there is a defined system, sometimes in order to press the pivote, as we did against City, you go from 4-3-3 to 4-4-1-1. The idea doesn’t change much, just the manner of defending the opponent a little.”

It’s perhaps unusual for a manager to be so forthcoming, but given what has been on show from Real Madrid all season, anything else would have been a major shock.

The main question is whether Fede Valverde will start on the right-hand side of that formation or Rodrygo Goes. The Brazilian has been a key part of the Champions League run, popping up with important goals, although mostly from the bench. The Uruguayan is not a natural wide player, but does had an extra solidity to Real Madrid and is a powerful runner. Football espana
