Zinedine Zidane’s men are looking to become the first side to retain the trophy in its current form as they target a 12th European Cup in total.
No team has lift the trophy more times and the squad looked in good spirits as they jetted off from Madrid to Welsh capital, despite a strong police presence with armed officers on patrol following the recent raised terror threat in the UK.
The Madrid bus was escorted from the airport to the team’s hotel under the watchful eye of these armed policemen.
The Spanish champions will face Juventus tomorrow night, who are aiming to win a domestic and European treble following another dominant season in Turin.
Gareth Bale has been named in the Real after not featuring since the Clasico defeat to Real Madrid after picking up a calf injury.
It continued a frustrating campaign for Bale , who missed a large chunk of the season with an ankle problem.
He has trained throughout this week but is expected to start on the bench in Cardiff.
“I am not 100 percent, I haven’t played for six or seven weeks,” Bale said on Tuesday.
“To last 90 minutes, I haven’t played a lot of football this year since my operation, so that would be difficult.
“I have been playing with a lot of pain, even when I came back I was taking tablets to get through games and training.
“The last six or seven weeks have enabled me to rest my ankle a bit and really try to get it a bit better, and obviously recover from the injury which it caused.”
Real have also been boosted by Dani Carvajal’s return to fitness.
The Spaniard was sidelined for Real’s last five matches of the season but has recovered and is set to start against Juventus.
Zinedine Zidane’s son Enzo has been named in the 25-man contingent but is likely to miss out on the matchday squad.
