Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that the duo Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale will be fit to play in the Champions League final in Paris.
Bale has not featured for the Spanish champions since making a 16-minute appearance against Getafe on April 9, just his seventh match in all competitions this season.
Hazard, meanwhile, has played once since mid-February having been given 26 minutes in their penultimate La Liga match of the season.
Speaking ahead of the Champions League game against Liverpool, the Italian gaffer said : “Hazard is fine and could play. Hazard has come back from his injury with enthusiasm. Everyone is excited to play including Bale.”
“The team is fine. We had a little problem with Marcelo, but he will recover well. The team is in good physical condition, we are going to prepare for what we want to do.
“We’re going to give it our all. It’s the fifth final in eight years. This team has achieved a lot. The team is happy, calm, with good atmosphere. As we get closer to the game the worry comes, but it’s normal.” He concluded.
A back problem has kept Bale out of Real’s end-of-season run-in but, after playing only 20 minutes for the Spanish champions since Wales last played in March, a chance to appear on Europe’s biggest club stage beckons.
