Rabat – Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane, has issued a warning to his players about the danger Atletico Madrid poses ahead of Tuesday’s play-off match.
Real Madrid is set to host their rival, Atletico Madrid, in their first Champions League semi-final game, scheduled to take place at Bernabeu stadium.
Zidane told the press that reaching the Champions League semi final round is a great achievement for his club.
Real Madrid has beaten Atletico Madrid before, in the 2014 and 2016 finals. They also defeated them in the 2015 quarterfinal round. Despite these achievements, however, Real Madrid’s coach stated at a pre-match press conference that those results would not prevent their opponents from trying their best in tomorrow’s game.
“It was positive for us but this is completely different, another semi-final, and they will do everything to try and get through,” explained Zidane.
