Carlo Ancelotti will be facing Real Madrid with Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the champions league.
Ancelotti managed and won the champions league with Real Madrid, their 10th European trophy.
He looks to win the title once again with Bayern Munich, but will have to beat his former assistant, Zinedine Zidane, who is now in charge of the club.
“The match against Real Madrid will be special for me. It is going to be exciting to play against them,” Ancelotti told a news conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.
“We have a lot of confidence and want to win the Champions League this season.
“I think we have the ability to beat Real Madrid. But they have a fantastic team with a fantastic coach.”
“It’s difficult but there are no simple opponents in the quarter-finals,” Ancelotti added. “It is very exciting to return to Madrid but it is just a football match. We want to be the better team against Real.”
