When your team beats a huge opponent 3-0 in the first leg of a Champions League semifinal, you’re left with no choice but to congratulate each one of your players in public. So did Zinedine Zidane.
Cristiano is a goalscorer. He’s unique
the Real Madrid coach started saying, commenting first on the scorer of all three ‘Los Blancos’ goals against Atletico.
Isco played as a number 10 and was fantastic
the Frenchman continued, praising his Spain international for yet another brilliant performance.
All the players were brilliant. One lad comes off and another one comes on and plays a great game
Zidane said in the Press conference after the game, adding that the key to his team’s spotless game was that
We knew what we had to do from the first minute, and we played the game we wanted to.
Despite the resounding 3-0 though, Zidane avoids taking anything for granted;
I don’t think that we’re euphoric and imagining ourselves in the final. There’s no such thing as an easy game and we need to play a perfect game at their place in order to go through
knowing that… crazy things happen in football, even to teams that seem to be holding their fate into their own hands.
