Gareth Bale 'would accept' Champions League final bench role

"They played 16 games together this season, everyone speaks about Gareth or Isco but they can play together".

Dybala will line up against Real Madrid this weekend as Juventus look to secure their first Champions League trophy since 1996. The team are in good form and we'll try to enjoy it. Hopefully, there's a clearer picture of Bale's health before Zidane has to make a decision for the final. That says a lot about this game but everyone likes to play in finals. "I think Isco has been fantastic". He has been practicing with the rest of the squad for the last few weeks. "He has helped the team".

Although Bale has come through recent training sessions unscathed, the 27-year-old is still continuing his recovery from ankle ligament damage. He missed the second leg of the quarterfinal against Bayern Munich and both semifinal matches against Atletico Madrid because of problems stemming from the ankle injury.

"I'm not 100 percent", he added.

There was widespread anguish among Juventus fans in 2014 when coach Antonio Conte was replaced by Massimiliano Allegri, who had been fired by AC Milan just a few months previously.

Bale admitted to Lowe how Isco could get the nod from manager Zinedine Zidane against Juve in Cardiff.

"They are very important players and everyone has their opinion, but that won't affect me".

"We're very happy to have reached the final, we're aware of how difficult it is but we've worked hard and we deserved it".

"It makes no difference to us if they play with three or four".

The players saw that as a turning point to their season. Real midfielder Toni Kroos (+2000) has also had a hot boot of late, with two goals in his last three La Liga starts.

"We just want to play a great game and then we'll see what happens".

"They were very generous and gave us a couple of bottles to celebrate".

Mijatovic scored "the most lovely and important" goal of his career and one of the most vital in Madrid's history as Real shrugged off the unusual tag of underdogs to beat a fearsome Juventus side 1-0 in Amsterdam in the 1998 final.

The Frenchman has passionately defended the under-performing Bale, and remarked earlier in the season that he would always pick Bale, Ronaldo and Karim Benzema if the trio were available. That's why we're both in the final'.
