Meanwhile, the Los Blancos will take on Celta Vigo in Saturday's early kick-off as domestic action resumes following a two-week international break.
Ancelotti's side have a nine-point lead over second-placed Sevilla, but will look to bounce back to winning ways following their humiliating 4-0 loss at the hands of fierce rivals Barcelona last time out.
Xavi Hernandez's resurgent side feel they have a chance of catching up with the Madrid-based club going into the last nine matches.
