Zinedine Zidane spoke about Gareth Bale's resurgence after he scored first during Real Madrid's 2-2 draw with Villarreal on Saturday night.
"I don't know," Zidane said when he was asked is Bale seemed like a different player. "Gareth never dropped his hands. He is training very well. He scored in the last three games and I'm happy with his performance, with what he does. Nothing has changed. If there is a different, it is the goals that he is scoring."
Zidane was also quick to put the league behind him and his players. "Man, we can't talk about the league. It's gone. What's left is out Champions League and I can tell you that we are very happy," he said.
He would not spill on what his team would be and said "I'm not going to tell you. We are ready. We've had no injuries and we are ready to play the last game of the season". It is seen as almost a given that Bale will start in Kiev but nothing is certain with Zidane keeping his cards close to his chest.
