Cape Town - Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has warned his side they need to improve their defending if they are to get a positive result against Juventus on Tuesday.
The sides meet in Turin for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash and the Los Blancos boss revealed he already knew his starting line-up, but would not reveal who would play.
"We'll need to attack so we can obtain a decent result but more importantly we need to defend much better than we've been doing lately," the Italian said at a press conference.
"However, I've ruled out playing with three central defenders. We only did it for 10 minutes against Celta Vigo and for the last five minutes against Sevilla.
"I've already decided on my team but I can't disclose anything. I think this is going to be an even tie but Juventus are different to Atletico Madrid [who Real played in the quarter-final].
"They have other characteristics and I'm expecting a different type of game because Juve are a team that likes to have possession of the ball."
The 55-year-old faces a selection headache up front with Javier Hernandez in imperious form of late, as well as Gareth Bale returning from injury, but the coach does not see it as an issue.
"It's not a problem for us when Chicharito is playing as he is because he's really helped us a lot. He was ready when I called him into the side and he'll continue to help the team because he's an important player.
"He can either start the game or come on later without any difficulty. He's in a great run of form and we all have to enjoy it.
"As for Bale, he is perfectly fit. He had a minor injury and we've given him time to make sure he gets back to full fitness.
"He's been preparing well and we gave him 30 minutes against Sevilla and he looked fresh."
