Zidane doesn’t want to hear talk of last year’s final
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane dismissed on Monday (April 2) any talk of comparisons with last year’s Champions League final against Juventus as his side prepared for Tuesday’s (April 3) re-match with the Serie A champions.
After being asked to draw a parallel with the match which his side won 4-1 in Cardiff, Zidane told reporters that this match has nothing to do with that final. He added that now Real Madrid have to think about this game and make sure to play well ahead of their quarter-final first leg tie.
Real have not had the best of seasons as they are third in La Liga and finished behind Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League group stage, but showed they are still a force to be reckoned with by beating Paris St Germain in the last 16.
