Real Madrid completed a solid performance and obtained a 1-0 win against Salzburg this Wednesday, managing to keep a clean sheet without conceding many chances. Coach Zinedine Zidane was happy after the game.

“I’m really pleased. We put in a good performance, that’s why we came here. We’re going to do great things this season and now it’s important to carry on with our preseason preparation because there’s still another game before La Liga begins. We’re getting ready and we’re better every day. That was confirmed by today’s match,” said Zidane to the press.

The Frenchman also talked about the recoveries of players like Jovic and the return of Militao and Casemiro, who add some depth to the team.

“I’m pleased because ultimately, all a coach wants is to have all his players available. There’s still one more game before La Liga and we want to be in great shape in order to compete. If we compete well, we’ll achieve great things,” explained the coach.

Real Madrid will face Roma next Sunday and then will have a week off before the start of the 2019-2020 La Liga season against Celta Vigo.
