Zidane must target domestic dominance at Real Madrid - Salgado

Real Madrid not favourites in final, says Zidane Real Madrid were never afraid, insists Marcelo

Isco took the place of former Tottenham Hotspur star in the starting line-up and scored Real Madrid's only goal in a 2-1 defeat, which saw them make the final thanks to a 3-0 victory in the first leg.

The team is loaded with talent but three players stand out amongst the rest. Isco's gol before the end of the second half helped Real Madrid to secure their tickets for Cardiff, where this year's final will be played.

Despite missing out on his side's semi-final clash with Juventus, the 27-year-old emphasised his desire to return to action in a photo posted on his Instagram page.

"It was an extraordinary match and there was great quality on show from so many players in our team", he said.

However a goal from Isco three minutes before the break effectively ended the contest and changed the atmosphere in the final European game to be held at the Vicente Calderon.

Meanwhile Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann will look to provide the spark in attack that was missing a week ago.

"Chelsea are the nearest, they have a real settled team and their first XI is a real, genuine first XI".

Zinedine Zidane has admitted that he considers his Real Madrid side as the underdogs when they face Juventus in the Champions League final.

Michael Owen isn't someone who is often quoted to support an argument, but his views on the away goal the night after Barcelona's astonishing comeback against PSG made a lot of sense.

"We have to understand that the moment we are going through is just a base for the future, it's not the limit", Atletico striker Fernando Torres said.

Madrid could become the first team to retain the Champions League trophy since the competition expanded in the early 1990s, with Zidane still only less than 18 months in the job as coach.

"After the game I asked Benzema how he was able to do that, but he didn't know either", Zidane said. "We were talking after the game and I asked him how he got out of there". In the final 15 minutes of the first half we started to play our game.

"It's been incredible. This is not over, we have three more games in La Liga and then we have to think about the final".
