The first semi-final of the UEFA Champions League will go down tonight with the only English representative Manchester City slugging it out with Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium.
Ronaldo sat out the 3-2 Liga win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday due to a thigh complaint, while Benzema limped out of the contest shortly before half-time after taking a blow to the knee.
Both players were named in Madrid’s travelling party and, speaking ahead of his team’s Monday training session in Manchester, Zidane stated his confidence that they would recover in time.
“The idea is that we want them to play tomorrow, of course, but we have the last training session now and we will see,” he said.
“They’re absolutely fine at the moment, they’ve recovered really, really well.
“We’ll test everything but the idea is that they’ll play.”
Zidane added: “I think they’ve got to be 100 per cent fit and I think they will be. They’re fine today.
“They are players who look after themselves physically. My idea is that they are both going to be fit to play.”
The Frenchman said he so much believes in his squad, that Manchester cannot stop them from featuring in the final match of the Champions League which will be played in the San Siro stadium in Milan Italy.
