1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REAL MADRID COACH CARLO ANCELOTTI SAYING:

“This is an important game for the club, the supporters and the players. There are possibilities to reach the semi-finals. Have the dream to play another final this year. Here what we have to do is to be able to repeat what we did the first half in the first game against them and try to be competitive for 90 minutes.”

STORY: Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has a sprained knee and will be out of the Champions League quarter-finals second leg against Atletico Madrid, joining a long injury list for coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Benzema, who picked up the injury in last Tuesday’s (April 14) 0-0 first leg draw at Atletico Madrid was expected to be match fit for the second leg but after having tested his knee during a training session, the Frenchman was ruled out for the game.

With playmaker Luka Modric and forward Gareth Bale also missing for Wednesday’s (April 22) return leg, attention will be on talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to lead them through but James Rodriguez may hold the key.

As well as the injury absences, attacking fullback Marcelo is suspended for the decider at the Bernabeu with the tie standing at 0-0 from the first game.

In the first leg, Real forced Atletico onto the back foot from the start and that is what coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to achieve again.

“This is an important game for the club, the supporters and the players. There are possibilities to reach the semi-finals. Have the dream to play another final this year. Here what we have to do is to be able to repeat what we did the first half in the first game against them and try to be competitive for 90 minutes,” he said on Tuesday (April 21).
