Carlo Ancelotti press conference

Carlo Ancelotti is excited for Real Madrid's clash with Liverpool.

Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night with the Reds eager for a repeat of their last meeting in the competition.

Madrid were soundly beaten 4-0 on that occasion, and current manager Carlo Ancelotti is determined to avoid such a similar result.

In the build-up to the game however, the Italian manager is savouring the occasion, posing almost tourist-like in front of the famous Anfield sign within the stadium.

Real Madrid conducted a training session on the pitch at Anfield on Tuesday night in the pouring rain, acclimatising to the surroundings ahead of the contest.

It will be a very different scene come kick-off however, with the atmosphere likely to have the potential to propel Liverpool to victory if the players are so inspired.
