Who's Africa's best Champions League contender?

Zidane answered questions on Ronaldo ahead of Real Madrid's clash with APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday.

Zidane admitted his side felt pressure as favourites aiming to be the first team to win three consecutive European Cups since the 1970s but his side were used to knowing they had to win each and every game.

Pressure, of course, is nothing new for any Real Madrid player, and Bale has been constantly struggling to live up to the lofty expectations generated by this then-world record price tag ever since he arrived from Tottenham four years ago.

One player who should make a difference is Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be eligible to play for the first time since receiving a four-match ban for pushing a referee in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona last month. Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio are the major absentees from the Frenchman's matchday squad.

Meanwhile, centre-back Vallejo and right-back Achraf have also been left out of Zidane's squad with the former having just recovered from an injury. While he is yet to serve the last of his suspension, the ban is only applicable for domestic competitions, meaning he is available for selection in Europe. He is doing well both physically and mentally. We can not talk about dependency, what I want is for all the players to be available for the coach.

Mayoral has a chance of starting in the team's Champions League opener because Benzema has already been ruled out due to a muscle injury in his right leg.

"He is focused on what he has to do and very happy to be able to play again, because that is what he likes to do".

A third winner's medal followed last season along with a first Primera Liga success but, according to a poll in one Spanish newspaper this summer, 72 per cent of Real supporters would have happily accepted the Wales forward's sale. "Whenever he is with us, we are happy".

Gareth Bale will welcome Ronaldo's return and the prospect of the spotlight swinging back away from him. I recall that for the first time the teams met in the 2011/12 season at the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and the victory in the sum of two matches was for the "royal club" 8: 2.

The Premier League have five teams in the Champions League this season and although they have not been exceptional in the Champions League in recent years, it is with these clubs that African players have the best chance of winning it.
