Zidane says Real Madrid are ready for Champions League final

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane said the two-time reigning Champions League holders are ready for their European showdown with Liverpool despite Saturday’s draw at Villarreal, while he praised Gareth Bale following his goal-scoring performance.

Madrid closed out their LaLiga season with a 2-2 draw against hosts Villarreal on matchday 38 – Zidane’s men squandering a two-goal lead.

Goals from Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo put Madrid in control as they tried to pip city rivals Atletico Madrid to second position in LaLiga.

But the visitors were pegged back after substitute Samu Castillejo rounded debutant and Zidane’s son Luca with five minutes remaining as Villarreal salvaged a point.

Zidane, though, was relatively upbeat post-match as he looked ahead to the Kiev showpiece on May 26.

“I haven’t got my starting XI for the Champions League final in my head,” Zidane told reporters. “We’re ready. Also we haven’t picked up any injuries tonight, which was important.

“We’re ready for this last match and Kiev final, which is the most special game of the season.”
