Real Madrid coach Ancelotti delivers Alaba update for Champions League final

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says David Alaba will be fit for the Champions League final against Liverpool next week.

Alaba missed last night's 0-0 draw with Real Betis for their last LaLiga game of the season.

Ancelotti said: “Alaba will be fit for the final. We didn't need to take any risks tonight. He'll rejoin the group on Monday and will be at 100%.

"It's true that it's been a while since he last played, but in these kinds of games, the fitness aspect isn't the only one that is vital, with ability and experience also playing a role.

"Davide (Ancelotti) wasn't here tonight because he's away doing a UEFA Pro course in Wales and he had to go there for two days, but he'll be back on Sunday."
