Real duo CR7, Bale fit to face Atletico in Champions League final

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit to play Aletico Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday.

Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will be fit to face Atletico Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final in Lisbon.

Despite former Tottenham winger Bale sitting out a morning training session, coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed the duo’s availability at a morning press briefing.

But the Italian is uncertain over the fitness of striker Karim Benzema after he picked up an abductor injury against Espanyol last weekend, but midfielder Sami Khedira is likely to take part in the Stadium of Light showpiece.

Ronaldo was limited to working on an individual training regime with a physio after he pulled out during the warm-up of last Saturday’s game as a precaution due to recent thigh problems.

"Bale has helped us a lot this season. He is in an excellent physical shape. Khedira is fit and ready to play," said Ancelotti.
