Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says Alvaro Morata is capable of a start.

The striker came off the bench to score in victory over Levante.

"I don't need to be persuaded by Morata and Jesé; I have every confidence in them. They have done very well for the team. My confidence in them is every bit what it was before," said Real's Italian manager.

"Morata is good enough to start, obviously. He doesn't have the same amount of experience as Benzema, but he is young, very keen and has a lot of skill inside the area. Morata is very important for us, and he is doing very well."
