The debate over whether Bale or Isco should start against Juventus has been rumbling on in Spain since the conclusion of La Liga, with the majority of the Spanish press favouring the midfielder over the Wales worldwide.

"You were the best player in the world, and now you are simply the best coach in the world", Madrid president Florentino Perez told Zidane in a ceremony celebrating the team's first Spanish league title since 2012. "But to last 90 minutes - I haven't played a lot of football this year since my operation, so that would be hard", said Bale, who joined Real from Tottenham Hotspur for a then-world record 100 million euros in 2013. They are both in good form heading into the final, although Bale has played fewer minutes. "Whatever is best for the team is ultimately the most important".

"The coach can only choose 11 players to start".

The Italian champions will face the LaLiga winners and European Cup holders in Cardiff this weekend, two years after they lost to Barcelona under Allegri in the Berlin final.

The Real Madrid forward initially said on Tuesday that he had "fully recovered" from his injuries in time for the final against Juventus.

LEONARDO BONUCCI: With 93 appearances, more than any other player - including captain Gianluigi Buffon, he has been an ever-present for Juventus over the past two seasons.

Bale's injuries have limited him to 24 starts in all competitions this season, the lowest number of games he has played since his 100 million euro ($111 million) move from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, although he has scored nine goals.
