CRISTIANO RONALDO is convinced he knows how Real Madrid will line up against Liverpool in Kiev.

Real Madrid forward and Wales worldwide Gareth Bale has given a new selection headache for manager Zinedine Zidane with a stunning brace in his side's 6-0 rout against Celta Vigo on Saturday.

"Madrid's top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo was rested against Celta to continue his recovery from a sprained ankle although there is no danger of him missing the final against Liverpool".

Just two minutes later, Isco got his name on the scores sheet after benefiting from a Toni Kroos' assist in the 32nd minute to increase the Galacticos lead to 3-0 before half time.

On a miserable outing for mid-table Celta, Sergi Gomez put through his own net on 74 minutes, leaving German global Toni Kroos to tuck away Real's sixth goal after 81 minutes.

It's a cathedral, a church. "But if you have Real Madrid vs Arsenal or Manchester United vs Bayern Munich every week, the audiences will be good".

"There is still one game to go [at Villarreal next week], and then we will play this final, and that's it".

Earlier on Saturday, Koke's early goal proved enough for Atletico to claim a 1-0 win at Getafe and remain on course to finish in second place.

The rout, in Real's final home game of the season, means they can still catch Atletico Madrid into second place on the final weekend. His first was a low shot that went in off the post.

Simeone admitted the challenge posed by Marseille would be different to that encountered at Getafe. We were very professional, scoring six goals and playing a lot of football.
