PRE-MATCH | Statements by Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid Coach)

"It's a very important match, it's the quarterfinals of a competition we're very excited about, and the atmosphere will be extraordinary. We have played a lot against them, but it will be evenly matched. To win at San Mames we have to bring out the best. Vinicius and Rodrigo are 20 years old, not 60 like me".

"It's quite obvious that this date is a bit weird and doesn't make sense, but I'm speaking on our side. We're going to put in a team that can compete, that's for sure."

"Benzema has done individual work and has a good feeling. We won't take any risks. We would if it were a Champions League final, not in the middle of the season. We have to improve on that, there is a nine, which is Jovic, although Covid has passed, there is Mariano.... There are box-to-box strikers, but maybe what we need to do to improve is to get more players in the penalty area."

"We have won the three previous matches, but it will be another story. They know very well how we play and they have their weapons. We are not going to change the way we play either. It's a very, very difficult match."

PRE-MATCH | Statements by Marcelino García (Athletic Club Coach)

"I am not nervous. I act with absolute normality, where my priority is: at work". 

"I have to give the eleven a twist, but we won't make many changes with respect to that FC Barcelona match. There are three midfielders, apart from Alex Petxarroman, who also helps us there when we are without Unai Vencedor, but it's pretty clear, isn't it? Between Mikel Vesga and Oier Zarraga we'll see who plays alongside Dani Garcia."

"I don't know what I'm going to do, when you're a coach and you get to the elite, once that happens, you want to grow. I was lucky enough to manage very good teams and now I'm at a great club. I approach my profession as something passionate and I live day by day. All my attention is focused on preparing for the beautiful game we're going to have against Madrid".

"We knew that we have to count on young people, I grew up in a quarry, Mareo, which was similar to Athletic. We are enjoying this project. The smartest thing for everyone is to focus on optimizing the performance of each player. These youngsters are going to be the future of Athletic".
