Despite defeat Real Madrid in CL final

Real Madrid eliminate Atletico Madrid to reach UEFA Champions League final

Gareth Bale is set to miss the remainder of Real Madrid's league campaign after coach Zinedine Zidane said on Saturday he did not know when the Wales worldwide will return from injury.

According to Marca, tying Zidane down for the long haul is President Florentino Perez's "aspiration" and the renewal will be signed "whenever the Frenchman wants".

Zinedine Zidanes side can become the first team to retain the Champions League title when they face his former club Juventus in the final in Cardiff on June 3.

"Today we still have four finals to try to win the championship and the Champions League, but in saying that, we haven't won anything yet".

"Madrid and Juve are just finalists for the Champions League, but you lose interest when you're not playing the final", he told a media event in Barcelona.

Betting on La Liga? After 25 minutes things changed completely, and we found our game.

"But I think above all else he is in a great club and to be a good coach, it is also important to have good players around you".

Zinedine Zidane's side lost 2-1 at Atletico Madrid last night but secured a 4-2 victory on aggregate, while Juventus comfortably dismissed French outfit Monaco 4-1.

"I'm happy and proud to have shown what we are all about", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said.

When Raphael Varane brought down Fernando Torres four minutes later and Antoine Griezmann converted the penalty, the comeback seemed a real possibility. It is another chance to get vital points and keep soldiering on.

However, with Barca expected to turn instead to Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde, Sampaoli still looks set to fulfil his ambition of coaching Messi by taking over as #Argentina boss at the end of this campaign.

Atletico's final European game at the Vicente Calderon before they move stadiums will be remembered for the fantastic atmosphere the supporters created as they tried to help their team overcome their arch-rivals. Madrid defeated Atletico in the final a year ago and in 2014, and also eliminated the crosstown opponents in the quarterfinals in 2015.

There was also hope raised that Cardiff-born Gareth Bale would be fit to play a part in the game in his home city in three and a half weeks' time, and could even return from his latest calf injury before La Liga ends on May 21.
