Real Madrid will face FC Barcelona on Saturday in El Clásico (15,15, Uk time) at Camp Nou and Zinedine Zidane spoke in front of the press before his second big clash in Los Blancos bench against the huge rivals.
The first clash had good memories, because Real Madrid were able to beat Barcelona: “Tomorrow it’s going to be a completely different game. I have a word but it’s bad. We went there with tight asses but we have to have tomorrow the same in the head. It’s going to be a completely different game. I want to be ready”.
One of the big question marks it’s whether Casemiro will start or not: “The starting eleven is decided and you know what Casemiro can add. Every day is better and we’ll see tomorrow”. The other player that will be ready is Iniesta: “We know how important is for Barcelona, that this don’t change what we are going to try to do. With Kroos we are going to go little by little”.
The French manager imagine a “complicated game, very tough, but the normal. We play against a great rival and we are ready. The most important thing for us it’s to be focus in doing our job”.
One of the good news for Zidane is that he’s among the nominees to win The Best Award given by FIFA: “Every day I’m learning, and perhaps it has passed few time to be among the three nominees. There are a lot of coaches that might be in the shortlist rather than me…”, Zidane said.
Despite Benzema is not in the best shape, the French attacker will play: “We know his importance. It’s evident that he gives us a lot, even more in a game like this. There are a lot of players that are a referent, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who I think can give us a lot in his favourite position. But tomorrow we’re going to propose a big team to the rival”.
