Ancelotti has maintained his habit of consistency, with no changes to his matchday plans, but he is expected to rotate, ahead of a Champions League quarter final first leg against Chelsea on April 12.
With the demands of multiple matches in a short window, Ancelotti could bring Antonio Rudiger back in, for some much needed match action.
Despite confirming ongoing contract extension talks with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, reports from Diario AS claim Ancelotti will rest the pair, ahead of facing Chelsea.
