Real Madrid midfielder Isco happier with fitness after Celta Vigo thumping

Real Madrid midfielder Isco says he's feeling stronger after their 6-0 rout of Celta Vigo.

He played an important part in Los Blancos' 6-0 win over Celta on Saturday night, assisting one and scoring another. However, he has admitted that a troublesome shoulder issue cost him some important preparation time.

"I lost out on days by trying to force myself to play against Bayern and I hurt myself in training, so it took me a little longer to get back," he said post-match.

"I'm happy to return with a goal and help the team win before we go to Kiev. Now we look towards the final, which is going to be the most important game of the year for us.

"Everyone wants to play but we must be prepared for anything and what will be important is how we perform as a team."
