Two-time defending Champions League victor Real Madrid hosts Celta Vigo on Saturday in league play as it continues preparations for another European final vs.

Bale has endured an injury-hit campaign at Real and there has been fresh speculation that he could leave the club this summer, but the Welsh global starred in Saturday's 6-0 rout over Celta Vigo. Things didn't go so well in the La Liga and the cup, but now we're in the Champions League final.

The home side took an early lead when Bale beat the offside trap to run onto a Luka Modric through ball for a finish in the bottom corner on 13 minutes.

"We must value the players that we have, and the players at different clubs, we can not control that".

With their title hopes long gone, Madrid have turned their focus to Champions League.

"It's better like this, to have everyone firing on all cylinders", added Zidane.

Marcelo said: "The start of the season was pretty tough, but we then began to gain confidence, score goals and play some good football".

Saturday's game saw goalkeeper Keylor Navas keep his first clean sheet in any competition at the Bernabeu in the 2018 calendar year, and Zidane said he was happy for the Costa Rica global. "When we conceded it was not just Keylor's fault, it was down to all of us". We will give everything to make those who come to watch the last home game leave happy.

Thanks to three consecutive wins over the likes of Malaga, Athletic Club and Sevilla, Levante secured the LaLiga survival and, as a result, coach Paco Lopez can breathe easier.
