Zidane: "It's an embarrassment that people are talking about a robbery"

Zidane:

I can't believe people say such things.

The midfielder was angered by Spanish television and radio presenter Juanma Castano after he described the reigning European champions' controversial victory over the Italian outfit as "a scandal" and "a robbery", following a late penalty being awarded to Lucas Vazquez's at the Bernabeu, which sealed Madrid's passage to the semi final. "I think that we fully deserved to progress to the next phase of the competition, that's for sure.".

"We are the best club in the world and when you're the best club in the world, there is a certain degree of jealousy". Malaga have won once in their last 17 matches coming into their battle with Real Madrid, and only have scored six goals in that span.

Buffon was sent off for dissent on the pitch and then vented his anger off it too, by saying Oliver lacked personality and should have watched the game at home with his wife.

Real Madrid will need to "suffer" if they are to overcome Bayern Munich and go on to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy, according to Los Blancos director Emilio Butragueno.

"It is 50-50, even though we have the first leg there", he continued. It's a 50/50. Bayern are better this year, they're competing really well.

Real Madrid will be aiming to get back to winning ways, and up to third, when they travel to La Rosaleda to face rock-bottom Malaga on Sunday. "It's going to be hard, but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it".

Sergio Ramos is likely to return, having been suspended in midweek, but Zidane is expected to rest other key players for the match. We did very well and we're in the semi-finals.' Real are fourth in the Liga standings and could be 18 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona by the time they play against Malaga.
