Ancelotti: Real Madrid in top shape for El Clasico

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says they're in great form going into the El Clasico against Barcelona.

Real host Barca tonight at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I think we are in really great form. Everyone is focused, we are all fit, in good condition," Ancelotti said.

"Barcelona are also going into the game in a good condition but we are where we want to be and playing well.

"We will put out a very competitive squad. We need to recover the best we can and do all we can as a squad to be ready for the game.

"But I think it is too soon to talk about a cycle. We enjoyed what happened and are fighting very hard to repeat our success of last season.

"We have a competitive squad and are playing well and have a huge desire to make that happen again."
