"It will send a message to everyone that we are all the same on the pitch wherever you come from", said Pogba.

"You can have a big squad with all the resources, but when the moment of truth arrives you need to not have injuries, for your players to be in optimum form and have luck".

"The same thing happened a year ago so we're not anxious at all, the opposite", said Zidane, who is the first coach to successfully defend the European Cup since 1990 and has won seven trophies since taking charge of Real in January 2016.

Real Madrid star Marco Asensio describes Neymar's world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain as "strange".

Zinedine Zidane has already shown his admiration for the young midfielder who has started as he means to go on already this season.

Ronaldo's absence has been felt even more acutely due to Madrid's surprising shortage of striking options.

The Portugal captain's only game for Madrid since being handed a five-game ban for pushing a referee during the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup was the 2-1 Bernabeu Trophy friendly win over Fiorentina, although he also played two World Cup 2018 qualifiers for his country. "He was an important player for them and [the fact] that they could not keep him is a little unusual". Cristiano brings not only goals, but is a leader as well and he always wants to win.

"We're happy to have Ronaldo back - physically he is very fit and mentally with all that has happened, with all the talk, he is in a good place".

Ronaldo's return boosts Real's attack after a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Levante on Saturday, their second successive home draw which left them trailing early Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad by four points.
