Madrid to face Juventus in Champions League final

It's Real Madrid v Juventus in the Champions League Final

Zinedine Zidane spoke at press conference the day before Real Madrid will play against Sevilla at Santiago Bernabéu.

The 33 year-old will be out of contract and although his future has not been confirmed, it is thought to lie away from Madrid amid reports of big-money offers from clubs in China, the United States and Italy.

Zidane revealed Bale's condition is improving, but admitted he is unsure when the forward will be in a suitable condition to return to the pitch.

Sampaoli is expected to leave the club at the end of the season to take up the vacant Argentina job.

That prospect now looks remote, with the French boss striking a far from encouraging tone as he revealed: "We are taking it day by day with Gareth".

"The first 20 minutes of this magic night at the Calderon will be remembered forever", the Atletico coach said.

"He will not be in the squad tomorrow because of his rib".

The two football giants Real Madrid and Juventus are due to battle it out in Cardiff in the upcoming Champions League final.

Cornyn also miffed Democrats earlier this year by resisting calls for a special counsel to investigate the Trump/Russia claims. After Trump fired Comey last week amid the FBI's investigation, Cornyn said it was "within his authority" to do so.

If Zidane's team collect seven points from those three games they will definitely be champions, but despite the proximity of the prize the French coach confirmed he will continue his long-standing rotation policy by making several changes from the team which started against Atletico in midweek.

"We have done phenomenally so far".

We're all set for our final home match of the season!

Dybala isn't the only admirer Zidane picked up during his playing days, with the Frenchman widely considered one of the greatest players of the modern era first for Juventus and later for Real Madrid following a then world-record move.

"The matches are hard".

The Spanish global and four-time victor of the competition said, via Marca.: "Madrid and Juve are just Champions finalists, but you lose interest when you do not play the final". The one in Seville because they are always high up in the table and are a very good team.

"We have to think exclusively about the game tomorrow".

"Look at what Celta are doing, and Malaga are in impressive shape at the moment".
