Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is in line to return from a knee injury on Saturday as Real Madrid welcome Valencia to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Frenchman has not featured for Real in almost a month – having injured ligaments in his right knee in mid-April.
However, Benzema is in the squad for this weekend’s La Liga fixture and will likely feature in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Juventus.
Real trail 2-1 in the tie after Tuesday’s first-leg defeat at the Juventus Stadium.
“He’s available, but he isn’t fully fit,” Ancelotti explained at a news conference on Friday.
“He feels fine and I’ll decide tomorrow whether he’ll make the team or start on the bench.”
