Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane hope that both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will be fully fit for the Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City.

Cristiano Ronaldo sat out Tuesday’s match against Manchester City, while Benzema had to be withdrawn at half-time.

“I said 100% but I did say there was still the training session to go” Zidane said.

“Ronaldo felt something after that, That is all there is to it, We didn’t want to make things worse”.

“Benzema it was a little bit different but little by little he felt a bit worse in himself, We didn’t want to gamble on his fitness”.

“We know how important both players are for us, We hope they can both be in the second leg”.
