Real Madrid’s upcoming game against Cadiz tomorrow will be an important one for a select few individuals, who will have an opportunity to impress as Carlo Ancelotti looks to ring in the changes.

The Real Madrid coach will have one eye on the upcoming Champions League semifinal second-leg tie against Bayern Munich, so he will look to rest his top players for tomorrow’s encounter.

Arda Guler set for a maiden start at Bernabeu

One of the beneficiaries of Real Madrid’s rotation policies is Arda Guler, as confirmed by Ancelotti himself.

The Italian tactician has confirmed in the pre-match press conference that Guler will start, along with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Should Ancelotti go through with his promise, tomorrow’s game will mark Guler’s first start at the Bernabeu.

It will indeed be an exciting occasion for the Turkish whizkid, who has been quite unlucky with injuries ever since joining Real Madrid in the summer.

Another golden opportunity?

Real Madrid’s renewed trust in Guler comes on the back of his stellar performance in the recent league win against Real Sociedad.

The Turkish international made quite an impression in that game, notably scoring the winner that helped Real Madrid gain crucial three points.

As Real Madrid take on relegation-threatened Cadiz, it will, therefore, be yet another golden opportunity for Guler to prove his worth.

A strong end to the season, after all, could go a long way in helping Guler solidify his standing in the first team and become a trusted attacking option for Ancelotti next season.

Hence, all eyes will be on the Turkish sensation tomorrow when Real Madrid take on Cadiz at Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
