- Story Text:Real Madrid trained at the National Stadium of Wales on Friday (June 2) ahead of the Champions League final.
Zinedine Zidane's players made their final preparations before facing Juventus on Saturday (June 3) under the stadium's closed roof.
Gareth Bale played a full part in the training session but Zidane would not reveal in his pre-match news conference whether the Welshman or Isco would start for the defending champions.
Real Madrid are looking to become the first team to win back-to-back Champions League since the competition was rebranded in 1992.
Up to 170,000 people are expected to visit the Welsh capital for the match which kicks off at 1845GMT.
