Kaka and Pirlo may be working well together, but they are set to compete for this year's Ballon d'Or award.
"I don't mind who wins the Golden Ball, but I think Kaka has an advantage because of the goals he scored in last term's Champions League," Ancelotti continued.
"But Pirlo deserves to be a candidate. I don't see many midfielders out there at his level. Hopefully we'll get first and second."
