The 44-year-old has had another spectacular season in charge of Los Blancos with president Florentino Perez eager to hand him a lucrative long-term contract.

Sevilla are the visitors to the Bernabeu on Sunday, with Real needing seven points from their last three games to secure a first LaLiga success since 2012.

He could become the first Real coach to lead the Spanish giants to a league title and European Cup in the same season since 1958, after his side saw off Atletico Madrid in their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.

"I am improving in all aspects (as a coach), but that doesn't mean anything", Zidane said. "It's been 10 years where he's done fantastic things, but with this I'm not telling you what is going to happen next year because I do not know".

Zinedine Zidane took over a Real Madrid side in crisis after Rafa Benitez was sacked midway through the 2015/16 season.

Wales global Bale sustained a calf injury in the Champions League quarter-final victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on April 12 and lasted less than 45 minutes on his return against Barcelona 11 days later. We realise that we have four matches left, at the beginning of the season we had 50 games left.

Trump's war with U.S. intelligence agencies just got a lot worse
A rare Democratic senator who's been friendly with Trump offered some advice: be more careful. "It's above top secret", King said. Trump also reportedly boasted to the Russians about the intelligence he was receiving, telling the two men, "I get great intel".

He was full of holes against the Oilers, allowing 19 goals against in seven games and posting a.895 save percentage. Anaheim center Nate Thompson refused to point to the lack of rest between series as the deciding factor in the game.

Which European competitions will Premier League clubs be playing in next season?
United's priority is clearly the Europa League final and Mourinho will field a weakened team so I fancy Tottenham to edge it. Pochettino believes his team's position in the table should be measured in the context of the club's inferior spending power.

"Now we have to go for the league title, we really want to win it, and then we'll have time to think about the final in Cardiff", said Real forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zidane has used the depth of his squad to great effect in recent weeks by making wholesale changes for La Liga games sandwiched between Champions League encounters.

With Real Madrid dispatching rivals Atletico Madrid 4-2 across the two semi-final legs and Juve dominating against Ligue 1 leaders Monaco to the tune of 4-1 on aggregate, the two sides are deserved of their spot under the Millennium Stadium lights. "I will pick a team as always and on Wednesday I will pick another one which, for sure, will have changes". We are only thinking about Sevilla.
