Zinedine Zidane met with the press before the clash against Osasuna. Real Madrid will host Osasuna on Saturday night.

Few words about Osasuna

Zidane said that Real Madrid is in good shape. The players have a very good spirit and it seems that the team can outplay any club. Keep in mind that Real Madrid is in the second position of La Liga. Real Madrid has the exact same amount of points as Barcelona. Los Blancos is in the second position because they have better results in the game against Barcelona. Atletico Madrid has two more points than Real Madrid or Barcelona. Diego Simeone’s team will play against Barcelona at Nou camp and it will be a big match for Madrid club. 


Key to winning La Liga

Zinedine said that the Real Madrid squad needs more rotation. Keep in mind that Luka Modric and Toni Kroos have played almost every game for 90 minutes each. In the match against Chelsea, Real Madrid midfielders could not run or act properly. That was visible that the Real Madrid coach knew the issue. Los Merengues has to rotate the squad, there is no other option. Zidane said that the only key to winning Spanish Primera is to rotate properly. French coach admitted that Real Madrid has to play with different midfield but there are big things at stake.

Barcelona’s loss against Granada

Real Madrid’s coach said that no one is an exception in La liga. Anyone can lose the games in La liga because it’s a very difficult tournament. Zidane noted that Real Madrid has to play five more rounds. Los Blancos may lose some points and it’s acceptable because team players can’t keep up with the schedule. They have to play games every three days and recovering all the muscles of the legs is not possible. That’s why losing points at this point of season is not surprising or shocking.
