Real Madrid must first get through their final LaLiga Santander game of the season, even though they have another Champions League final to prepare for. On Friday night, Real Betis will visit the Santiago Bernabeu, and coach Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping his players avoid any extra injuries ahead of their trip to Paris to face Liverpool.

Beyond the Betis match, Ancelotti has already decided how he will set up his team for the final. When asked how he’d line up his team in the final, which is still a week away, Ancelotti answered, “I have no qualms about the starting XI in Paris.

“My only doubt is whether those who start the game or those who finish it will play a more essential role.”

Real Madrid's XI for the Champions League final has no uncertainties, I'm confident - Ancelotti

Real Madrid have been able to relax in recent weeks since qualifying for the Champions League final and winning the La Liga title in April. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Premier League fate will be decided on the final day of the season.

When asked which position he would prefer, Ancelotti replied, “It’s true that they’re still battling for the league title.

“We’ve had more opportunities to consider this game. But we haven’t given it any thought and won’t till Monday. But we’ve prepared everything. Real Madrid fans are looking forward to the Champions League final, which we hope to win for the 14th time. There’s nothing else. “

Ancelotti didn’t reveal much about his starting lineup against Betis, leaving his statements open to interpretation. Ancelotti said, “I’m thinking about allocating minutes to the guys that need them. From Monday onwards, [David] Alaba will train with the rest of the group.”

In light of this week’s game and his future, the Italian was again asked about Gareth Bale. “Bale has trained but isn’t fully fit,” the coach said.

“We’ll see if he fits on the bench, but I’ll have to leave two in the stands tomorrow. He may or may not make the bench.

“His contract is up, and whether or not he plays tomorrow is irrelevant. He’s a part of our club’s history and will always be a part of it. Bale has played a key role in both the Champions League and Copa del Rey finals. It’s only right that everyone understands this. “
