During a press conference held ahead of the final on Tuesday, the Frenchman said: "Both are very good players and they've also played together this year in 16 games."

"They can play together and the important thing is that they come into this final stretch of the season in very good shape," Zidane reiterated.

The French coach explained that the decision is difficult because "everyone is available and I will have to choose between the entire squad," adding that he was glad to see Bale has recovered.
