Real Madrid has three La Liga games to play before the Champions League finals and he is hopeful the Portuguese international will be back to face Villarreal in the final day of the La Liga.

"It's incredible that he's already walking after 48 hours," Zidane continued.

"That shows his ambition, his desire to want to play. It would be perfect if he was able to play against Villarreal.

Liverpool is also having some injury causalities with the likes of Joe Gomez ruled out of the clash and Alex  Oxlade- Chamberlain and Joel Matip are ruled out of the final, Emre Can remains a doubt due to a back injury.

Real Madrid will definitely have all their players fit before the final against the Red and Ronaldo will be expected to lead Los Blancos attack.
