A win in the Alfonso Perez Coliseum would put the pressure on both Barca and Atletico and give Madrid the chance to close the gap on at least one of their title rivals and Zidane will be able to welcome striker Karim Benzema back into his side. The Spurs manager also admitted to having a "weakness" for Zinedine Zidane as a player and a manager and hailed Real Madrid as the best team in the world. We will try to win.
Madrid won LaLiga last season and became the first team to retain the European Cup in its present format when they dispatched Juventus 4-1 in the final in Cardiff. "The passion is the same as that of a Bielsa team".
"When you are playing with the Spain your future is magnified [by the media] but the only thing in my head is Real Sociedad, nothing else matters. It is the best way to describe it. I always say that he is the one person in my life that has convinced me to continue on with determination; to be a footballer and to want to be a manager", he said.
The contract of Didier Deschamps expires in 2018 and Zidane is aware that he is one of the most reliable candidates to take over the Blues after the World Cup.
Bale is currently nursing a calf issue while Benzema has a hamstring injury, joining Keylor Navas (Achilles), Marcelo (Thigh) and Mateo Kovacic (partial abductor tear) on the treatment table.
