Zinedine Zidane confident about Real Madrid comeback
With a 2-0 loss to Wolfsburg in the first away leg, Real Madrid face a tough challenge to turn things at their home Santiago Bernabeu this Tuesday.
The current coach Zinedine Zidane is confident about his team and insists that failure is not a option and they aren’t thinking of elimination.
Zinedine Zidane believe Real Madrid can pull off the fight to get a historic comeback at Bernabeu and turn down the 2 goal lead of Wolfsburg. Zinedine Zidane has claimed that Real Madrid are not even thinking about the possibility of getting knocked out of the Champions League.
The confident Frenchman told in pre-match press conference, “Real Madrid are never prepared for elimination. Madrid are always thinking about making it to the next round. We always want more. That is why this club won so many European cups,”
He continued to show his positive attitude, “I am not worried. We have to remain calm and think about the task at hand. You always have to be positive. I love challenges like this. It’s a good thing to be facing a difficult task.”
Zinedine Zidane talked about his strategy focusing on that Real Madrid can’t afford to concede but everything is possible. “Conceding a goal would further complicate matters, but it could happen. We have to remain focused for the full 90 minutes. It will be easier if we keep a clean sheet, but we just have to play our own game.” Zidane continued,”We know that we are capable of scoring goals, but we have to remain careful. We need balance. We must defend well and cannot afford to only think about attacking. We have to match their intensity.”
If Real Madrid concedes just a single goal then they have to score at least 4 goals to proceed in Champion League knockout stages.
Zidane concluded his press conference by remaining calm under high pressure,”Real Madrid have had some extraordinary comebacks in the past. Tuesday might be the most important match of the season. But I am not feeling extra pressure. I feel the same pressure as always.”
Football is a thrilling game and we can expect Real Madrid to give their best to make their fans proud by making another magical comeback.
