Real Madrid coach Zidane focused on Juventus

Madrid, April 10: Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane on Tuesday said he was solely focused on Juventus and was facing the second leg of the Champions League quarterfils as if his side did not enjoy a three-goal lead. Speaking on the eve of the match, the French coach said his side still needs another solid game to ensure a place in the semifils, reports Efe.
"We have one fil and it is tomorrow. Then we will see if we get through, and then who we have to face, but we must not think beyond tomorrow’s game," Zidane said. "We have not won anything just yet.
"The 3-0 result will not change things for us. It’s another game and what happened, happened. It was a good game, but there is still 50 percent of the tie to be played," he said.
Zidane did not reveal if French forward Karim Benzema would play on Wednesday, but acknowledged that Benzema was unhappy about his lack of goals this season. Madrid’s coach also refused to say whether the recently-recovered Jesus Vallejo was being considered to start as a central defender to cover for the absent Sergio Ramos and cho Ferndez. IANS
