Madrid, April 22: Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said on Saturday that he wanted to avoid seeing his side classed as favourites ahead of Sunday's 'El Clasico' at home to bitter rivals FC Barcelo. A win for Madrid in probably the biggest domestic club game in the world would all but assure them being crowned as Spanish league champions for this season. Zidane's team certainly look to be in better form than Barcelo, who were knocked out of the CL by Italian giants Juventus on Wednesday. However, speaking to the press on Saturday, Zidane was anxious to avoid putting extra pressure on his side to perform. "There are no favourites, because it is a game in which you have to play, to fight and to work... We are not favourites; people might think that, but neither side is more favourite than the other," he said. IANS
