Maybe we lack a striker, but we will get by — Zidane

Messi's six goals have helped cushion the blow of losing Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for £198million earlier this summer. However, the Cules will almost assuredly have another bid lined up for him in January.

"Last season we have (Alvaro) Morata and Mariano (Diaz) and now we only have (Borja) Mayoral, so people could think that we are lacking a number '9' and that could be the case", said Zidane who added he "would have liked" for Morata to have stayed. We have Karim, but he's out. I believe in Mayoral.

Zidane will also be able to recall Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Luka Modric, Isco and Gareth Bale after they were all rested from the start against Levante at the weekend.

"We're not pleased with these results, but this is football".

He has drawn plenty of praise for his performances and won four caps for Spain.

"Zidane told me that since Messi, he had never seen a left foot like mine", Asensio told Spanish radio station COPE ahead of his side's Champions League opener against Greek team Apoel Nicosia.

Barcelona have begun well and sit atop the table through the first three league fixtures, while Cristiano Ronaldo's five-match ban has had an influence on Real Madrid's two consecutive draws.

With that being said, Neymar's exit will undermine Barcelona success this season. I hope that's the last time this season he's not available. He's an important player in the squad, he's a leader who always wants to win and that rubs off on the others. I am very happy here.
