Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the Real Madrid line-up as Los Blancos visit Villarreal (20:45 CEST) in their last match before next Saturday's Champions League final.

Luca given debut as Cristano and Carvajal return

Tonight's final-weekend LaLiga clash at the Estadio de la Cerámica also sees head coach Zinedine Zidane hand son Luca a first-team debut in the Real goal.

Cristiano has not played since being forced off with an ankle injury in Real's 2-2 Clásico draw with Barcelona two weeks ago, but Zidane declared yesterday that the 33-year-old is "120%" fit going into the side's meeting with Liverpool in Kiev.

Dani Carvajal also returns to the XI after recovering from a thigh strain that has kept him out of action since last month's Champions League semi-final first leg at Bayern Munich, and captain Sergio Ramos starts after being rested for the 6-0 thrashing of Celta Vigo seven days ago.

Cristiano is "120%" fit, says Real boss Zidane.

Villarreal coach Calleja rings the changes for the hosts

Meanwhile, Villarreal boss Javi Calleja has made several changes to the team that beat Deportivo La Coruña last time out, with Andrés Fernández, Daniele Bonera, Adrián Marín, Javi Fuego, Nicola Sansone, Roberto Soriano and Enes Ünal all coming in.
