This is Lisci's call for the trip to Madrid.
Carlo Ancelotti confirmed in his press conference that he will not reserve after resting the most usual players against Atlético de Madrid.
In the past it happened to me when I told someone to rest: without naming names, I put him on the bench and he gave me a bad face. Today, without naming names either, but to players who have won four Champions League titles, I have told them to rest and there have been no problems. This is the difference of Real Madrid. And this is why I say that it has been an easy season. The difficulty for the coach is the ability to keep the whole squad motivated"
