Gareth Bale (calf), Dani Ceballos (ankle), and Federico Valverde (knee) are all expected to miss out owing to injuries, while Eden Hazard is a doubt due to illness.
Ancelotti is unlikely to make many changes to his starting lineup, however Eder Militao, who would join Mendy, Dani Carvajal, and David Alaba in the back four, could be recalled ahead of Nacho.
Rodrygo is another player who will be looking to break into the starting XI, although Vinicius and Asensio are expected to stay on the flanks and assist talisman Karim Benzema in attack.
