Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane: 'Karim Benzema driven to do better'


The topic had become more prominent in the light of Barcelona and Real's resounding wins over Italian opposition in the UEFA Champions League. "However, for sure, right now, he is the most decisive bomber who scores at a phenomenal rate".

This is a new situation for the former Tottenham Hotspur player, whose starting place as one of the "BBC" attacking trio along with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo was generally assured when fit during his first four seasons at the Bernabeu.

In 2013, Real won again with a double by Ronaldo, whilst Fernando Llorente netted a consolation for Juventus.

Oliver will officiate his second Champions League knockout match of the season.

Juventus trail 3-0 after Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Madrid to a huge away win last week. They did it with James [Rodriguez] last season.

"There are many people who remember Di Stefano, it is normal - many people, and I am one of them, will now remember Cristiano with this club".

Their European campaign has been in total contrast to their disappointing La Liga form as they now languish in fourth place in the standings, 15 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona.

Madrid didn't concede against Las Palmas, but before that they conceded at least once in five straight matches, including three times against Girona in a league game at home.

In midfield, Miralem Pjanić will be available for selection having missed the first leg due to suspension.

For the first 45 minutes, Real Madrid were absolutely all over their eternal rivals but just lacked the goal that the good work deserved. He's too injury-prone and does not have Zidane's full backing in Real's biggest games.

"Buffon is a great person and a great player, but we are just thinking about tomorrow's match we are just focused on beating Juventus".

"I thought about giving up football because of the injuries I had". The chances of qualifying aren't good, but we have to try and above all cancel out the doubts that emerged after the 3-0 defeat.

"In Madrid, we will be playing with the same pride we have always played since we are Juventus".
