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

“It is more complicated to win La Liga as we are two points behind. It is true that it is only two points but it is clear that Barca have more chances. In the Champions League we are all equal as we all have to play two matches that I think are complicated for all but I think we and the others are at the same level.”

“(Luka) Modric can be ready to play at the end of the season. I think he will be able to play the last game against Getafe. This is the date that we have established for him to come back. I think (Karim) Benzema can be ready for the first leg and (Gareth) Bale I think should be ready for the game against Sevilla FC.”

STORY: Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes it would be easier to win the 2015 Champions League trophy than overcome arch-rivals Barcelona to win La Liga.

Barcelona lead the Spanish league with 78 points, two ahead of Real with six games remaining. Both teams are also in the Champions League semi-finals; Real face Juventus while Barcelona take on Bayern Munich and former coach Pep Guardiola.

“It is more complicated to win La Liga as we are two points behind,” Ancelotti told reporters at a news conference on Saturday (April 25). “It is true that it is only two points but it is clear that Barca have more chances. In the Champions League we are all equal as we all have to play two matches that I think are complicated for all but I think we and the others are at the same level.”

Barcelona play city rivals Espanyol later on Saturday while Real are away to Celta Vigo on Sunday (April 26).

Real are missing a number of key players for the closing stages of the season but Ancelotti is hopeful the likes Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema will feature in some part.

“Modric can be ready to play at the end of the season,” he said. “I think he will be able to play the last game against Getafe. This is the date that we have established for him to come back. I think (Karim) Benzema can be ready for the first leg and (Gareth) Bale I think should be ready for the game against Sevilla FC.”
