Is this the Real Madrid team to start against Liverpool?

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane already knows his starting eleven to face Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday in Kyiv, according to reports in the Spanish press.

Now, it must be noted that the media outlet claiming to know the team is Diario Gol and they are well known for exaggerated claims.

This is the line up that Zidane is said to be sending out.

Keylor Navas
Dani Carvajal
Sergio Ramos
Raphael Varane
Marcelo
Casemiro
Luka Modric
Toni Kroos
Isco
Cristiano Ronaldo

It is notable that Gareth Bale is not included and that is said to have not gone down well with the Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez.

The thinking is that Perez wanted Bale to play so that the club could realise a big transfer fee for the Welshman, which does seem a little hard to believe.

Bale has not been an automatic first choice for some time now, and it really is no surprise that Zidane would not start with him.

Considering the source of this supposed line up, there is every likelihood that it is not accurate, but looking at the players named it is probably very close, and Diaro Gol may yet claim to have scooped every other publication on the planet, even if it was nothing more than an educated guess.
