Zidane defends out-of-form Benzema ahead of Juventus tie
Apr 11, 2018, 08:53
Ronaldo's brace in a 3-0 win against Juventus last week - which included an incredible overhead kick from the club's all-time leading scorer - has put Real firmly in charge of their Champions League quarter-final tie ahead of the return leg in Madrid tonight. "It's another game - what happened, happened", the Frenchman said in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
Coiling mid-air, back to goal, Cristiano Ronaldo struck the ball at 2.38m, the height of the cross bar, to score one of the most spectacular Champions League goals of all time. "I'm only interested in tomorrow's match and I only think of my team and how we need to play another great game to qualify". "We aren't going to go out and play for a 0-0 draw, we want to try and win what we know will be a demanding game". "In Madrid, we are lucky to have Cristiano Ronaldo with us".
Real have claimed only two La Liga titles since 2008, under Jose Mourinho's guidance in the 2011/12 campaign and with Zidane last season. It's another game and what happened, happened.
"We have to just think about reaching the semifinals, nothing else interests me". From what we've seen in practice, he is fine. We are regaining our confidence, the goals and our overall game. The point did little for their top-two ambitions as they remain four points behind second-placed Los Colchoneros, having dropped to fourth in the table.
Juve's task is all the more hard because Paulo Dybala is suspended having been dismissed in the first leg.
Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is suspended and his immediate substitute, Nacho Fernandez, is out injured. Reserve centre-back Jesus Vallejo is also a doubt for the game.
The French coach was unable to account for why Real Madrid was doing better in the Champions League than in La Liga. None of these sides have managed to overturn a three-goal deficit. Over the past two seasons at Real Madrid, Asensio has been huge for the European champions and has only grown from strength to strength at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Buffon was asked if Cristiano Ronaldo is the complete player at the moment.
This is done and dusted, but Juventus won't want to turn up and get embarrassed.
Zidane joined Real Madrid from Serie A giants Juventus in 2001 for a world record €78m.
According to reports in Brazil, Ramon signed his contract last week and is expected to travel to Madrid in the next few days to undergo a medical before being registered with Castilla, Madrid's reserve side.
