Real Madrid go into the second leg of their Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City trailing by a goal, but with confidence sky high.
On the one hand, because they have already won LaLiga Santander and have done so with almost all their players in the right frame of mind.
The consequence is that it will undoubtedly be one of the most complicated choices for Carlo Ancelotti, aware that he will have to leave players who are in great form on the bench, and players who deserve a place in the match for a place in the final in Paris.
The only certainty is that there are three players who have no chance of playing - Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic.
The case that most raises doubts for Ancelotti is that of Rodrygo Goes, who started the first leg but because of the absence of Casemiro, which left Fede Valverde in midfield.
However, with the Brazilian's return, he'll take his place alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, so the Uruguayan could move up his position alongside Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior, or play as a fourth midfielder.
Rodrygo's important goals
That would leave Rodrygo on the bench and that's the most likely plan, but the fact is that Real Madrid need to score and the Brazilian has found the net a lot of late.
Apart from his brace against Espanyol, he scored a great goal against Chelsea to equalise the tie coming off the bench, had a good game in Pamplona and scored a decisive goal also coming off the bench at Sevilla. That makes it four goals in his last five games.
Counting against Rodrygo is perhaps only the first leg, where he did not shine as expected and where Real Madrid were outplayed by Manchester City's midfield without Casemiro.
Another player who is crying out for a place and who many missed at the Etihad Stadium was Eduardo Camavinga. His presence would only work if Casemiro were to play at centre-back in place of Nacho Fernandez, given the injury suffered by David Alaba.
