Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insisted the Champions League's top-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit for Saturday's final against Atletico Madrid despite a persistent thigh injury.Zidane confirmed Ronaldo didn't play in a practice match Saturday as a precaution.The three-time World Player of the Year also came off at half-time of Real's final La Liga game of the season -- having scored twice in the first-half to take his tally for the season to 51 -- at Deportivo la Coruna 10 days ago.Zidane will therefore have his first-choice starting 11 fully-fit with the on-form Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema set to join Ronaldo in attack.An 11th European Cup would cap a sensational start to Zidane's senior management career having turned around Real's fortunes with 21 wins from 26 games since replacing the sacked Rafael Benitez in January.
