Golden chance for Higuain to end final jinx against former club Real

Golden chance for Higuain to end final jinx against former club Real

Spanish football giants Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Isco Alarcon and Gareth Bale may appear in the Champions League final against Juventus on June 3. "It is down to the intelligence of Zidane and my teammates, it is better that they played more, but it is the trainer that makes the decisions".

If Zidane doesn't start the Welshman, he'll likely turn to Isco to fill the void.

"It's going to be a hard decision", Zidane said.

One of Madrid's greatest players, Zidane also has a close connection with Juventus, his team's opponent in Saturday's final in Cardiff.

"I am not 100%: I haven't played for six or seven weeks: I obviously had my operation which still really hasn't recovered", Bale said.

Isco has flourished in Bale's absence, scoring key goals in the league and in Europe to drive them to the brink of another remarkable season. "We are happy to have Gareth back with us because he is important".

The Wales global is available for Saturday's final against Juventus in his home city of Cardiff after a troublesome season, which saw him miss three months in November with an ankle problem.

"Gareth has nothing to say, he has a tremendous dream because he is playing at home, I know the motivation all the players have and I'm only interested in that". Isco has been playing fantastically well for us, at the end of the season, so whatever the manager decides I will [accept it].

The good thing in all of this is that we're one day closer to the final actually being played.

He threatened BMW with a 35 percent import duty for foreign-built cars sold in the country. Trump has repeatedly criticized Germany's high trade surplus with the U.S.

"We know what type of player Isco is, he showed that throughout the season, but the important thing is that all our players are in top form".

On the other hand, Dani Carvajal has finally recovered from the hamstring injury he picked up against Atletico de Madrid and will be "200% ready to play" if his words are accurate enough.

"It makes no difference to us if they play with three or four". If not, I will be doing that as well.

"It is fantastic to win the league, but the Champions League is always special to me".

I think this game will be won not so much by who starts, but who comes from the bench.

Due to their success in the Champions League in recent season, Real have many players used to this level. I feel better than I have in the last few years and I hope to help the team with goals on Saturday.

And he also believes that "in a final, there are no favourites". They're all good. I played at Juventus for five years and I've got good memories of that time.

Predrag Mijatovic tucked away the only goal of the match to win the title for Real Madrid in a frustrating night for Zidane and Montero.
