Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid are up against league leaders Atletico Madrid this season.
The derby is set to be a tough match and Zizou has now briefed reporters on Real’s situation prior to the game.
On the match being like a final: “We’re always talking about finals, every game is a final here. I see it as another opportunity to show what we’re about as a team. What we want is to deliver a great football match, just as we did the other day”.
On Atletico being title favorites: “Yes, they’re showing that form now. They’re a team who are doing what they do best on the pitch. They’ve always been a competitive side and right now they’re in first place and we know what they’re about. All we’re thinking about is what we’re going to do tomorrow”.
Finally, on being so behind in La Liga: “You’re always asking about what’s going to happen. We have to play the game first. We want to deliver a great performance to show what we’re about as a team. It’s going to be tough because they are strong opposition and we’ll have to give it our all, not think about the result. This is a squad of players who are capable of extraordinary things and that’s all we’re focused on”.
