Real Madrid's fans want to see Gareth Bale start ahead of Karim Benzema in tonight's Champions League final against Liverpool, according to the results of a survey carried out by AS.com. 

The Welshman has been in fine scoring form for Real of late, netting four times in his last three appearances.

Nearly 30,000 AS readers vote for Real Madrid XI

28,933 readers took part in a poll asking them to vote for their preferred XI in Kiev, and gave the nod to each of the outfield players who were in the team that faced Villarreal in LaLiga last weekend

The only change comes in goal, first-choice keeper Keylor Navas unsurprisingly replacing  youngster Luca Zidane, who made his debut in the 2-2 draw at the Estadio de la Cerámica.

Real Madrid's Champions League final XI, as chosen by AS readers:

Keylor; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco; Bale and Cristiano.

Bale for Benzema as fans go with 10 of Real's Cardiff 11

Such a line-up would be almost identical to the team that began last year's final win over Juventus, with Bale's selection over Benzema - after receiving 16,029 votes to the Frenchman's 7,425 - the sole change from Cardiff.
