Cristiano Ronaldo played a really good match today and the French manager didn’t doubt on talking about his performance:” He was very happy because of his performance but he knows we could score more goals.

Now we must play the second leg and they have a very good team that can score you two goals in our stadium”, Zidane affirmed about the second leg.

Bale couldn’t’ finish the match because of muscular problems and the French managed changed him in the 58th minute: He had muscular problems and we didn’t want to risk. Now he has a lot of pain but we hope it’s not an important injury. I’m very happy with Asensio’s performance because he is a very good player who can play in every type of games”, the French manager said about Bale’s substitution.
