ZINE­DINE ZI­DANE ad­mit­ted his side had an af­ter­noon to for­get yes­ter­day de­spite Real Madrid mov­ing seven points clear at the top of La Liga thanks to Cris­tiano Ron­aldo’s dou­ble in a 2-1 win over Sport­ing Gi­jon. “We can’t be happy with the con­tent of the game, but that can hap­pen some­times,” said Zi­dane, whose 81.8% win rate is now the best of any Real coach in La Liga his­tory. “When you go two goals up you have the game in your hands and one goal for the op­po­si­tion changes ev­ery­thing. They go in at half­time more con­fi­dent.It was our third game in a week, a lot of rain, less con­cen­tra­tion which made ev­ery­thing more dif­fi­cult. Hav­ing said all of that, we are happy be­cause we are still the lead­ers and on a great run.” How­ever, Zi­dane in­sisted there is no need for con­cern ahead of a meet­ing with Barca’s fear­some front­line of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ney­mar. “There is no con­cern,” added Zi­dane. “We have a week ahead of us to work, work and work some more.”
