Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Pepe and Benzema still not training with the team

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

All three of those Real Madrid starters are yet to complete a training session with the squad five days away from the Final

It seemed that Pepe, Ronaldo and Benzema would be able to play the Champions League Final against Atlético, but just five days away from the decisive match in Lisbon, all three missed Tuesday's training session.

They might be able to start the game, but how fit? Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe will need to be aggressive, and it seems that Benzema has been going through a couple of injuries that have been limiting his performances. Anyway, Ancelotti seems confident about their presence in the Champions League Final. Bale appeared to be fit but he missed today's training session too.

On the other hand, Di María and some of the other players who were having physical problems lately like Carvajal or Modric, have completed the session and seem to be looking forward to start Saturday's Final. That way, Ancelotti's only concern will be about Pepe, Ronaldo and Benzema. Three men who have arguably been the best players for Real Madrid this season with Modric and possibly Sergio Ramos.
