Real meet Athletic Bilbao later today.
Ancelotti said, "I'd like to finish the season well. We have the challenge of ending the league in second place, which isn't what we wanted at the start of the season, but we want to see off our fans in the best possible way.
“The team's in good shape, everyone's ready to play. Mariano won't be able to start the game, but the rest of the squad is available. We want to finish this season strongly, have a rest and prepare for next season.
"There are players here who are under contract and others who are due to finish theirs. We're going to have a slightly different squad next season, but it'll be a competitive squad that excites me a lot."
