Ancelotti will make his competitive debut as Real coach today against Real Betis.
He said: “In Real Madrid, it is not enough to win; you have to play well and in an offensive way. The team have performed well, showing quality in pre-season and I am hopeful that we will see the same against Betis: playing well and winning. I am looking forward to making my home debut on the bench at the Santiago Bernabéu.
"It will be a special moment in my career. This stadium has always got behind the team and all the players. If the team play well, the Bernabéu will always get behind them. The atmosphere inside the ground is always very good and if the team play well, there won't be a problem."
