Liverpool suffer ANNOYING blow ahead of Champions League final vs Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane prior to the La Liga match between Sevilla and Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has highlighted the two players he wants to join him up front for Real Madrid next season, and there's no room for Gareth Bale.

Though, they have already conceded the Spanish League title to their arch rivals, Barcelona, they are on track to cap their season with silverware as they host Liverpool in Kiev for the Champions League final.

Madrid boss Zidane was again questioned on the possibility of a move for Neymar after watching his side batter Celta Vigo 6-0 on Saturday and the Frenchman, while talking up the lure of the club, opted to focus on the weapons already at his disposal.

Atletico have 78 points, three ahead of Real with one game left and Atletico's superior head-to-head record means they finish above their neighbours for the first time since winning the title in 2014.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has reiterated that he was confident of Congress retaining the power. Still, Polling to 222 Karnataka Assembly constituencies began at 7 AM and will continue till 6 PM.

The visitors come into the clash winless in their last five games, the last of which was a 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna.

Isco, also hoping to earn a place for the Liverpool game, curled home a fantastic strike, Achraf Hakimi scored and Sergi Gomez slid in an own goal. A great goal making the score 2-0. Gareth Bale was not in the squad that night due to suspension. Iago Aspas, Emre Mor and Nemanja Radoja are all doubtful for the match, with Aspas the only one likely to make it into the starting eleven on Saturday. Celta Vigo would be determined to finish in the top half and Iago Aspas's return should boost their chances.

The French manager will be keen to see his side get back to winning ways and regain a positive momentum to both end Madrid's domestic season on a high.
