Ancelotti confirms Benzema and Ronaldo should be available for Champions League Final

Even though both players had to leave the game with muscular injuries, the Italian coach addressed the media and confirmed that they should be ready for Saturday's match

In case you haven't heard, Diego Costa and Arda Turan have left the decisive game at the Camp Nou in tears, both of them apparently will miss Saturday's Final. Plus, Atlético de Madrid might as well lose the Liga BBVA title. If they finally lose at the Camp Nou, it will not be easy for them to play the Champions Final without two of their starters. Costa and Arda are so important for Atleti that Simeone is in deep trouble if neither one of them can make to the Champions League Final.

And that will not be Benzema and Ronaldo's case. Ancelotti confirmed after the match that Benzema and Ronaldo only had muscular fatigue and decided to leave the game and avoid further risks. Furthermore, Pepe could also be available as he will start jogging this Monday, Ancelotti confirmed as well.

It could've been a lot worse, but if Madrid can count on Ronaldo and Benzema, La Décima will be much closer.
