Madrid squad fully fit for final

Real Madrid will have all 23 first-team squad players available for the Champions League final, Zinedine Zidane has confirmed.

There were fitness doubts surrounding both Gareth Bale and Dani Carvajal ahead of Saturday’s final in Cardiff against Juventus but both will be available for squad selection.

“We’re happy that [Gareth] Bale has returned to the team,” Zidane told reporters.

“I’m happy to see that he’s fit and has no problems. We’ll prepare for the game all together, and we’re ready.

“Everyone’s available, so I have to make a choice from the 23 who are available to me, who will play and who will go on the bench.

“There are others who might not even be called but who have had an extraordinary season. For me this is the toughest decision, right I can’t say what I’ve decided or not decided.”
