Zinedine Zidane has this to say,
Whether it be Liverpool or Roma they face in Kiev, Los Blancos will be strong favourites to lift the title.
“We are only in the final,” Zidane said. “You can be happy, you have to be, it is not normal to be in the final for the third consecutive time.
“But now that we are, what we have to do is try to win. We will fight to defend our title.”
Benzema’s two goals were also credit to Zidane, who had picked the striker despite a poor run of form that had included only one goal in 12 games.
“He never gave up and I’m happy for him,” Zidane said. “I defended Karim as I defend all my players, I defend them until the end.”
