Real Madrid have eight points from their opening five games of the season, having drawn with Levante and Valencia at home before losing to Betis on Wednesday after conceding a goal in the 94th minute of the game. Real Madrid is now seventh in La Liga with two draws and one defeat from their first five games. They are at winless Alaves on Saturday, but it is at home in the league where the worry remains.
'If I had a seven-point lead, I would not be saying the season is over, ' he said. The team won all their away games but at the Bernabeu Valencia and Levante held them to a draw before Betis defeated them with a late victor in a 1-0 win. "This is football, when the ball just did not want to go in, this can happen".
"We have dropped seven points in a small number of games but there is a long way to go and we can't throw everything we have done until now in the bin because of two or three average games", insisted Zidane. "It's going to be a very special match, something rare but that's a good thing". Before I was lucky, now I am jinxed. No, no, I've always been a shining star, don't worry. I love my job and enjoy it every day. As Real Madrid pushed forward in search of a victor, Sanabria had a 90th-minute goal ruled out for offside, but made amends with his late victor.
The 22-year-old midfielder told his club's website: "We've started badly, we didn't want to do it like that".
As reported by goal, Ronaldo said: "We have a lot of players who can score goals and I'm sure it won't be a problem".
Adan added: "It is a result that gives us huge satisfaction".
It was after victory at San Mames in their title winning campaign in 2013/14 that Diego Simeone admitted for the first time his side could beat Madrid and Barca to La Liga.
Enzo joined Alaves on a free transfer from his father's team in the summer, and it's safe to say, Zidane is taking no prisoners. "And suddenly, he'll set me up to score". Maybe we did not deserve to win, but for sure we did not deserve to lose.
