Carlo Ancelotti's future at Real Madrid will be decided this week.

Real president Florentino Perez is pleased with the work of Ancelotti, but El Confidencial says a heavy defeat to Champions League opponents Bayern Munich will force him to show the Italian the exit door.

Real go to Munich for the second-leg of their semifinal favourites and Perez expects progress to the final.

Victories in the Copa del Rey final and also at Valencia have strengthened Ancelotti's case, but he needs victory over Bayern to be safe - particularly with Atletico Madrid remaining clear at the top of the table.
