Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press ahead of Sunday’s home game against Espanyol —20:45 CET—. The French manager will be hoping to get the first home win for his team after dropping seven points in three games played at the Bernabeu during this young La Liga season.
"We can't go thinking that we don't like playing at the Bernabéu. Quite the opposite, if we could play here every week, it'd be better for us. It's true that we've dropped points here in LaLiga, but we can't change things that are in the past. We'll be giving our all to get the three points. We love our supporters and enjoy enjoying playing at our stadium,” said Zidane.
He also spoke about Espanyol and their playing style.
"They're a team that has the players to play good football, but when you play here at the Bernabéu things are different. They may well come here and sit back. We'll have to read the game right and look to find solutions. We'll have to go out and play our game and perform well right from the off,” he added.
"We've won our last two games and done so by playing well in both of them. We want to put in a good performance. If you play well and make a strong start we'll be in with a good chance of winning the game and that's what we'll be looking to do tomorrow,” concluded Zidane.
