Real Madrid is more than 100 years of history
Real Madrid is the feeling that unites us
It is understanding that it is about much more than just a ball.
It is the Bernabeu on a big match day.
It is losing your voice through cheering.
A feeling without borders.
Never giving up
Hala Madrid!

Gareth Bale (flu) joined the team at the residence this morning, but his fitness is still in doubt. He spent last night at home to minimize the risk of contagion but arrived to Valdebebas today accompanied by a nutritionist. AS reports that decisions for both him and Cristiano Ronaldo (thigh) will be made at the last minute. Cristiano will need to pass a fitness test in order to be given the green light. [+]

Training | April 22, 2014 

Bale was able to complete Tuesday’s session. However, he hasn’t overcome his flu-like symptoms and is spending the night at home instead of the team residence.

Yellow card alert: Alonso, Illarra, Ramos

Absences: Arbeloa, Jesé, Khedira (injury)

Squad list | Concentracíon | Preview

Ancelotti and Alonso press conference [+]

- Marcelo isn’t 100%, so Coentrão will start. Ronaldo’s availability is a game-time decision. A physical exam will be carried out Wednesday to determine if he’s fit enough. Being used as a sub hasn’t been ruled out.

- Khedira’s recovery is coming along, and Ancelotti is confident that he’ll be playing before season’s end.

-  Bale’s illness was played down, but there are reports that his availability is in question.

- Alonso is counting on support from the crowd to boost the squad Wednesday.

- He stresses working as a unit in both attack and defense. To him, possession is pointless if you aren’t effective.

- The only thing similar about Bayern and Barça is that Guardiola is coach. Alonso doesn’t think it’s worth making the comparison.

News

- watch: historic goals against Bayern [+]

- Regarding Bayern player availability, Neuer (calf) and Alaba (flu) are likely to play. Van Buyten (child birth) returned to Germany. Thiago (knee), Shaqiri (hamstring) and Starke (unspecified) are injured. Only Mandžukić is a card away from suspension.

Kickoff vs Bayern (H) is Wednesday, 8:45 PM CEST | 2:45 PM EDT.

I saw there was a debate about football fans in the US on tumblr last night. Mostly about Americans using the word soccer. Not that it matters to me what anyone calls it. But it was mentioned that being a football fan in the US is hard. Do you live in the US and what's your opinion?

Iker Casillas: “The team had a fabulous competition. It was a great game. Both teams had their share of scoring chances and we are the worthy victors. I’m happy for the fans that came and I’m happy for the team. Now we need to remember a kid who’s going through a rough time, Jesé. He’ll be with us soon enough.” | ©
