Two-goal Bale gives Zidane Champions League final hint

Two-goal Bale gives Zidane Champions League final hint

Bale found the back of the net twice, making it seven goals in nine games for the Welsh forward.

17 minutes later, the Welshman doubled his side's lead in the 30th minute with Isco assisting the second goal while Bale completed his brace for the fixture.

He fired a Camp Nou equaliser in El Clásico last weekend and, speaking to reporters after the Celta rout, Zidane said: "I don't know my team yet [for the final] but it's better to have everyone plugged in". "Of course now deciding a starting 11 for the final is going to give me a real headache".

At least two dead, 13 injured in Indonesia church attacks
The U.S. blames JAD for a suicide bombing and gun attack in Jakarta in January 2016 that left four people dead and 25 injured. He said 41 people were wounded at that location, including two police officers, while one or more of the bombers were killed.

Zidane has left Bale in the margins for most of Madrid's run to a third consecutive Champions League final, starting him in only one of their six knockout games this season and taking him off at halftime in that game at home to Juventus.

"It's a great club and an important one, the history speaks for itself".

"We will face a team who are very enthusiastic, with very good attacking players. We did very well".

French anger at United States sanctions on Iran
On this basis, the JCPOA was supposed to be merely an "introduction", or a "symbol" for controlling Iran's enormous power. If the U.S. punishes European companies for doing business with Iran, foreign companies will likely walk away from Iran.

However, reports have been gathering pace that Neymar is set for an imminent return to LaLiga with Madrid, and Zidane suggested at a news conference on Friday that he would be "compatible" with Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo.

And he received a warm ovation from the supporters when he was substituted after 71 minutes, his double taking his league tally for the season to 15.

On Bale's showing, the coach added: "He is very good, he has shown that. But the important thing is that we all arrive in optimal form".
