Zidane Not Worried About Madrid’s Form

Real Madrid gaffer Zinedine Zidane insists he has no doubts that Real Madrid will reach the last-16 of the Champions League if they match the performance that rescued them a last-gasp draw at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Madrid fell behind to a Marcus Thuram brace either side of half-time in Germany before Karim Benzema and Casemiro scored late goals to rescue a point in their second Champions League group game.

However the result leaves them bottom of their group following a shock 3-2 opening day home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk, with their next two matches coming in what is now a crucial double header against Inter Milan.

‘The result shows the character in this team,’ Zidane said. ‘We deserved to draw and I think get even more. I like the reaction and it’s an important point.

‘We played well throughout the match, but it’s true that we lacked something because we didn’t win. We believe in the plan and we deserved the draw’

The result comes after an impressive win against Barcelona in the El Clasico.
