Cristiano Ronaldo delighted as Real Madrid set to field 'BBC' vs. Al Ahly
From ESPN - December 13, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo has said he is pleased that Real Madrid's "BBC" strikeforce could be back together in Wednesday's Club World Cup semifinal.

Gareth Bale, who has played only 30 minutes since late September because of muscle problems, is set to feature against Al Jazira in Abu Dhabi, with Karim Benzema also available again.

The "BBC" last started in April's Clasico against Barcelona, and Ronaldo told beIN SPORTS: "I like for there to be a full squad, not just with Karim and Bale.

"I like for there to be no injuries -- it is a good sign that we are all together and that the squad is very good.

"They are two forwards, like me, but there are other important players too, in midfield and defence.

"Others who have played less who will maybe get a chance at the Club World Cup. It will be nice for the BBC to play together again."
