Faced with the numerous absences, Carlo Ancelotti could start Aurélien Tchouaméni in central defense, as he does; confirmed at press conference: "Convincing players is very important. When we talk to them, we understand if they want to play games. this position or not. Almost all of them told me that they had no problem because they take into account the difficulties of the team and they want to bring. I'm not going to put a player who doesn't like to play in this game. a position. Force things, never, try to convince, yes. We have other options that I need to consider. Leipzig is very strong on set pieces and for Brahim, this is not his greatest quality, it is not a giant. Carvajal in central played very well. I have to think about it." 

The technician returned to the German team:"The match worries me a lot. Preoccupation is an important aspect of preparing for the match. One of the most important things is that they scored 26 goals on the counterattack. They are a fantastic counterattacking team, with very fast and high quality attackers. You know Olmo very well, but all four are very good."

He's an excellent opponent. They are in a good period. They know what it means to play this competition and to win it, we have to focus on everyone. Brahim, Rodrygo, Kroos, Modric… they are all excellent. But we have a good group, good players. We will give everything on the pitch and seize our chances. We want to get a good result for this first leg, we want to be competitive with the ball, in possession of the ball. We are not afraid of anyone", said' the technician.
