Real Madrid’s star attacking trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema sat out training with their teammates on Tuesday just four days before the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid in Lisbon on Saturday.

Bale and Benzema, who was substituted with an abductor injury in Real’s 3-1 win over Espanyol at the weekend, missed the session completely, whilst Ronaldo completed an individual workout with one of the Real physios.

Ronaldo pulled out of the game against Espanyol in the warm up after feeling the recurrence of a thigh muscle injury which forced him to miss the 2-0 defeat away to Celta Vigo the week before.

Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo have scored 95 goals between them this season, but haven’t started a game together since the 2-2 draw against Valencia over two weeks ago.
