Gareth Bale and Dani Carvajal are both sidelined through injury for the hosts.

Sevilla's were held to a 1-1 draw by Real Sociedad on 5 May, denting their hopes of catching Atletico Madrid in the race for the last automatic Champions League qualifying spot. The Andalusian club beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the reverse fixture in January.

Mariano (knee) and Vicente Iborra (leg) are injury doubts for the visitors.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "We're very happy to reach another [Champions League] final, it's to everyone's credit, especially the players. It's deserved, no more than that. Now we're in the final, we're going to have time to prepare it, but we're happy for what we've done. We had difficulties at the start of the game [against Atletico Madrid], for the first 20 or 25 minutes, but we didn't have to worry because we were going to have chances." [via Football Espana]

Jorge Sampaoli: "It was an important match for us [against Real Sociedad]. If we had scored 30% of the chances we created, the match would have been decided sooner. We will face the match against Madrid with ambition and then we will think about the last game which is also very important." [via Marca]
