Coach Zinedine Zidane could not explain why the Real Madrid in the Champions League is significantly better than in the Spanish league.
“We want to always win. But sometimes, as in this season, we are not constant enough.” In La Liga is Real Madrid only fourth, 15 points behind leader Barcelona. In the quarter finals of the Champions League won the Royal now the first match with Juventus with a 3-0. The second meeting, on Wednesday in Bernabeu, it seems little more than a formality.
Real Madrid won in the last four years, three times in the Champions League. In that period it was only once champion of Spain. “Nothing is so important to me as the national league,” said Zidane. “For the players also. Nevertheless, our results internationally much better. No one has in the past period in the Champions League accomplished so much as we are.”
Real fog at the back of the suspended captain Sergio Ramos and the injured Nacho Fernandez. Possible that the relatively inexperienced Jesus Vallejo is now in the defense plays.
