Bale set to start for Madrid against Liverpool

Bale set to start for Madrid against Liverpool

Bale has been in the bench while Isco enjoyed more playing time following his performance for Spain during the March global friendly against Argentina and Germany, but the sudden resurgence of Bale in the last lap of their La Liga game has won Zidane's heart to hand the Wales captain a starting berth.

"He's one of the best players in the world and every time he comes on to that pitch he makes a difference".

The two sides face each other in the final of the Champions League in Kyiv on 26th May with Los Blancos starting as the favourites to retain the trophy they have won for the last two years.

He said that Brad Stevens, the Celtics' coach, had mixed up his own rotations and that "kind of threw us for a loop". He had a 46-point, 12-rebound outing and a 45-point Game 7 against IN in games where he didn't make a buzzer-beater.

Real's performance in La Liga is a concern though, finishing 17 points behind Barcelona and a further three behind city rivals Atletico, but they have shown that their experience in the Champions League is vital.

Bale has been on the fringes of Zidane's squad for much of an injury-plagued season, although the Welshman finished the La Liga campaign strongly with a number of goals in the closing stages of the season. "As a footballer I was a bit better, but he wasn't bad", said Zizou after Klopp said the former Madrid midfielder was always better than the rest. "He's been playing at a top club for a long time where brilliant players have notoriously not lasted very long".

However, Wales boss Giggs believes his player has the ability to dictate Saturday's result whether he starts or not.

The president believes it easy to win trade wars when the rules of the game are so lopsided against you. The biggest exporters of auto parts were Canada, Mexico, China, Germany and Brazil.

But Giggs, as Manchester United's record appearances holder and a former assistant manager at Old Trafford, admits it is hard to see Liverpool just 90 minutes away from being crowned European champions.

The Spanish giants are now aiming to win the European Cup for a 13th time. "But in those situations you just have to look after yourselves and try and win things".
