Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane insists Real Madrid can still defend their Liga title this season as “it’s complicated but not impossible.”
Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to Espanyol on Tuesday left them 15 points behind Barcelona, but the table-toppers failed to beat Las Palmas 48 hours later and face Atletico this weekend, knowing their lead could be cut to just two points.
“The League will go down to the wire,” the Coach said at a Press conference for Los Blancos’ visit of Getafe on Saturday. Nothing is ever a given in football. We must put it in our heads that every League match is important. It’s complicated, yes, but not impossible. Our defeat to Espanyol annoyed me [after Barca drew with Las Palmas]. No Neymar for PSG? It’s not a relief that he’s out. I’m sorry for him, but PSG are a very good team. The player who replaces him will be a good one, certainly. We don’t think that it’ll be any easier without Neymar. We know that in Paris, we have to be at 2000 percent if we want to go through”
Real Madrid will be hosting Getafe CF on Saturday 3rd.
