thumbnail Hello,

The Chilean coach is prepared for a pragmatic tactical approach from los Azulinos...

Real Madrid welcome Xerez to the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday evening with every onlooker expecting a comfortable win for the hosts, and coach Manuel Pellegrini has revealed how he has prepared his team for the match.

"There was a meeting [between the players and coaching staff] with a summary of every game we have played so far, in order to highlight the positives and the negatives," the tactician told AS.

"We are prepared both for a team that comes to sit in their own penalty area, as for one that wants to win the game."

There are question marks over whether Sergio Ramos will make his comeback from injury tomorrow, but his coach is glad to have him back in training as his versatility is invaluable.

"For me, Ramos is a full-back but he has the versatility that allows him to play in different positions without no problems."
