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.

Bale, however, admitted that he is not fit for the match after recovering from ankle surgery.


Meanwhile, the Juventus team and coach Massimiliano Allegri have also arrived in Cardiff ready for their Champions League final.

The Italian side will train at the Millennium Stadium later on Friday, while Coach Allegri will answer reporters’ questions at a news conference.

Serie A champions Juventus have been European champions twice while Real have won the title a record 11 times in their history.

Defending European champions Real are aiming to win the title two years running, which would be a Champions League first.
