‘Ronaldo & Benzema are fine’

Carlo Ancelotti believes that Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will both be fit for Saturday’s Champions League final.

The Portugal and France internationals are both doubts for the match against Atletico Madrid in Lisbon at the weekend.

The Ballon d’Or winner pulled out of the warm-up before Saturday’s match against Espanyol, whilst the former Lyon man came off after 60 minutes holding his groin.

But the Italian Coach has claimed that the forward pair are fine, and should play at Estadio da Luz.

“I think they’ll play,” he told AS briefly. “They’re both okay.”
