Real Madrid NEED Bale AND Ronaldo to start against Bayern

Posted on April 23, 2014 by admin

That historic and record breaking 10th Champions League victory has been on the minds of Real Madrid for 12 years now, ever since Zinedine Zidane scored that peach of a volley to give Madrid the trophy in 2002. The pressure has been cranked up on every Madrid manager since, but despite regularly getting to the latter stages, `La Decima` has evaded them all.

Carlo Ancelotti is the latest coach to get Real Madrid to within a whisker of the final, but we are now facing the favourites and holders Bayern Munich. Ancelotti and his players have proved at times this season, especially in Europe, that they are a match for anyone, but to stand a realistic chance of beating the Germans, Madrid really need both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale to start tonight, and both are a doubt.

Bale has been ill and so did not stay with his team mates at the hotel last night, while Ronaldo did train yesterday but is due to have a late fitness test on the thigh problem that has kept him out in recent weeks. Ancelotti has vowed not to take risks with either of his stars, but if I was him I might not feel the same.

We need to make the most of the home advantage at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium tonight. Surely a 10th Champions League trophy is worth a little risk Carlo!!
