- Story Text: Zinedine Zidane and his Real Madrid team flew into Cardiff on Friday (June 2) ready for their Champions League final match against Juventus on Saturday (June 3).
Coach Zidane is due to hold a news conference during the afternoon and his players will familiarise themselves with the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff where the match will take place on Saturday evening.
Among the squad is Welshman Gareth Bale who was born in Cardiff. He is hoping to play in the final, even if it is off the bench, but has admitted he is not match fit after recovering from ankle surgery.
Real are fresh from winning La Liga for the first time in five years, and are the defending European champions. They are aiming to win the title two years running, which would be a Champions League first.
