Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has warned his side against Celtic ahead of the UEFA Champions League game between the two sides this week.
Defending La Liga champions Madrid will take on last season’s Scottish Premiership champions Celtic at the Santiago Bernabeu in UEFA Champions League Group F on Wednesday evening.
Madrid, who won the UEFA Champions League last season, are at the top of the group with 10 points from five matches and have already progressed to the last-16 stage of Europe’s premier club competition.
Meanwhile, Celtic are at the foot of the table with just two points from five matches and will not even qualify for the UEFA Europa League.
Madrid can be backed at 7/1 on Betfair to win 2-1 against Liverpool.
Ancelotti told Madrid’s official website: ““I don’t think they are going to change their identity.
“They’ll play their game, with intensity passion and quality. It’ll be an open game and we want to be at our best.
“I have a lot of respect for this team and they could do better in the group.
“They’ve come very close and they’ve played well in a lot of games. They played well against us for 60 minutes.”
