How and where to watch — Real Madrid-Numancia

"You can analyze it any way you want it, saying it is a crisis or whatever, but we are here to find solutions", Zidane said. These are discussions that happen in a team. Their second and third goals may have taken until the waning moments of the match when Numancia had been playing with ten men for almost half an hour, but more goals were always coming, and thanks to Isco and Borja Mayoral, they did. "The talk was longer than usual, but that's it". If we keep losing points we're not going to get there.

Zidane also spoke about the bad performance that Real Madrid suffered this season, which let Barcelona ahead of the White team with 16 points in La Liga.

"The club always has the chance to go into the market to buy the great players". We'll continue working more than ever. "There is nothing else to do but that".

Madrid fans have also had to sit back as main rivals Barca have splashed out £142million to sign Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool in this transfer window. The frustrating thing is the goal before half-time and another right at the end.

Leganes, founded in 1928, is playing only its second season in the first division of Spanish football. We will not live in the past, but will not throw away what has been done either. "I am satisfied across the two games, and the players are too".

"We have a squad, I believe in my squad". We still have everything in front of us.

However, there have been some questions about whether the Real boss actually signed a new deal with Los Blancos, with no official announcement having followed.

Zidane could not count on all of his players in training on Tuesday. "Why would I change my opinion in two or three months?"

Fringe players Marcos Llorente, Dani Ceballos and Kiko Casilla all look set to start for Real Madrid.

People might think that everything comes easy to me, that I do it all by instinct, but they'd be wrong. Barcelona are out of sight, out of mind at the top, but Real will undoubtedly want to improve on their league standing.

Insane as it sounds, Marca has been warning this week about Real Madrid falling out of the Champions League places, and if Sevilla and Villarreal put runs together, a real battle for fourth could begin.

On Jan. 13, they host sixth-place Villarreal.
