Real top eight sport not yet finalised- Zidane

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane feels that his team’s 3-1 lead is not enough to take them through to the last 8 teams.

He labeled Napoli as ‘dangerous’ and believes that they will give it their all to fight for survival in the return leg, on their own turf.

“We still have to go there and play another game,” Zidane said. “It will be difficult, we will have to suffer there, as the tie is not over yet. It will be 50-50 again. I would have liked a clean sheet, but it is a good result. They can be dangerous in any moment. But we have our own weapons and can hurt them too.”

“We played a great game, I don’t know if our best, but above all a great start,” he said. “Their goal was a pity, but we rectified it quickly and were back in the game. I am happy with the result, which is logical. We put in a lot of intensity, concentration, which was important as always, against a good opponent, with good players and in good form.”

Zidane who is not counting chickens yet, is looking forward to give Napoli a hard time, to secure a spot in the last 8. Real Madrid are the reigning champions of the EUFA.
