Zidane on Ronaldo substitution: 'He has to rest and that's it'

Zidane on Ronaldo substitution: 'He has to rest and that's it'

Zinedine Zidane's side are now four points behind second-placed Atletico and will close that gap with a win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

According to the notoriously unreliable site, the Anfield side have placed a €200m valuation on 25-year-old, although the current Champions League holders hope that the addition of Gareth Bale into the deal could see it over the line.

This was yet another performance that showed exactly why he has been attracting admiring glances from around Europe.

Simeone's what-we-have-we-hold move nearly backfired when Bale skewed wide, while Sergio Ramos made his regular pitch to be Madrid's last-ditch hero - forcing Oblak to push a wonderful free-kick behind in stoppage time and powering over from the resulting corner.

In the 88th-minute, and with Los Blancos searching for a victor, Diego Godin diverted the initial attack before Lucas Hernandez smashed the ball high and out of Atletico's penalty area.

"We are not doing anything special for the game".

Griezmann has nine goals in his last eight Atletico outings, so expect a few more from the Frenchman if he can continue his good goalscoring form.

Zinedine Zidane has said his Real Madrid side will not be giving Barcelona a guard of honour at the Nou Camp for the next El Clasico on 6 May.

Sunday's result means that Barcelona finish the weekend even closer to the title as they have extended their lead at the top of the La Liga table.

While it seems that Barcelona have La Liga all but sewn up, there is a chance the two sides will meet another two times, should they be drawn together in the Champions League semi-finals. We have to do our work well and play a complete game, he said ahead of the game.

Zidane's men will welcome the Serie A leaders to the Bernabeu on Wednesday night carrying a 3-0 first-leg lead, but with their head coach insisting the job is far from done.
