Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid do not have much to play for in La Liga after sealing the title with their win over Espanyol.

All eyes are now on the Champions League final against Liverpool, and the manager is expected to rest key players in the league games in preparation for the same.

Los Blancos face Cadiz in an early kickoff tonight at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza. Ancelotti will be without the services of David Alaba, Marcelo, Dani Ceballos, Dani Carvajal, and Marco Asensio on the night through injury, but also risks losing players to suspension.

Eduardo Camavinga, Toni Kroos, and Ferland Mendy find themself on four yellow cards at the moment. If they are booked against Cadiz, they will miss the final league clash against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Needless to say, there will be no repercussions if Real Madrid lose on the final matchday too. Yet, the manager would want to have his best team against Los Verdiblancos to keep his men match-fit for the Champions League final.

Though Ancelotti has preferred to rotate his squad, all three players are expected to start on the night. Marcelo’s injury forces Mendy to play a part from the opening whistle.

Meanwhile, Camavinga has become a regular player under Ancelotti in these closing games and is expected to start alongside Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Cadiz currently sit on 35 points, just two points clear of the relegation zone. The hosts need a win on the night, and will not make it easy for the champions at their own den.

One of the destinations Real Madrid’s desperate search for a new striker took them was the city of Milan. As Karim Benzema prepares to announce his departure from the club, many saw Lautaro Martinez as the ideal replacement considering his consistency and form at the club level.

Inter Milan vice-President Javier Zanetti spoke to TyC Sports about the situation of the World Cup-winning striker and revealed that the player was happy in the blue-and-black colour.

“I’m so calm as Lautaro’s really happy here at Inter.”

Zanetti did not beat around the bush and directly got to the point of Real Madrid’s interest, denying the existence of any such occurrence.

“I haven’t heard anything about Real Madrid rumours, we know nothing about that.”

The 25-year-old has been one of the driving forces behind the Nerazzuri’s stunning run this season across all competitions. He has scored 21 goals and provided six assists in 37 Serie A appearances and has also created nine big chances.

The Argentine scored both goals on the night last week when Inter Milan downed Fiorentina to take the Coppa Italia title. In fact, he has eleven goal contributions in his last nine games for the club.

Benzema’s sudden decision to leave Real Madrid has shaken up the administration, who have less than a month to finalise the arrival of a new striker.

Reports state that the club do not plan to spend big on a number nine this summer, and a long-term signing will be the priority next year.

Roberto Firmino has also emerged as one of the top contenders to replace the Ballon d’Or winner. Nevertheless, it is safe to say that the Merengues’ transfer plans are now in jeopardy.
