"That’s the target we have" - Carlo Ancelotti's warning to Liverpool

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has sent Liverpool a warning ahead of the Champions League final.

The Reds will face the La Liga giants on the 28th of May at the Stade de France. Liverpool defeated Villarreal 5-2 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

Real Madrid on the other hand secured a 6-5 aggregate victory over Manchester City to progress to the final.

Despite Liverpool's quality, Ancelotti has revealed that his side will still be looking to play their game on the 28th of May.

“I think the final is going to start 0-0, so that’s a good starting point for us,” the Italian told SiriusXM FC’s The Football Show, as quoted by Football Espana.

“We’re happy to be able to play the final and of course we’re going to play against a tough team, one of the best in Europe. But when you play the final of the Champions League you’re going to have to fight against one of the top teams in Europe.

“We’re excited to play this game and we’re going to prepare really well. We’re going to be 100% fit and we’re going to try to play our game. That’s the target we have.

“In this kind of game you have to play with courage and personality. We have to prepare our game in order to show our quality and Liverpool will do the same.

“You can’t play a game to try to avoid the quality of your opponent, you have to try your best to show your quality. And we have a lot of quality. So do Liverpool. So whoever is able to do that best is going to win.”
