Zi­dane re­lieved

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

ZINE­DINE Zi­dane praised the way his Real Madrid side hit back from the shock of con­ced­ing an early opener to put one foot in the Uefa Cham­pi­ons League quar­ter-fi­nals with a 3-1 first leg win over Napoli.

Lorenzo In­signe put the Ital­ian side in front but Real lev­elled t hrough Karim Ben­zema be­fore sec­ond-half strikes from Toni Kroos and Casemiro turned the tie around.

Zi­dane said: “We played a great game — it was a shame about the Napoli goal but we rec­ti­fied things, scored our­selves and turned the game on its head and I think it was the right re­sult.

“We’ll go t here t o a dif­fi­cult ground where we’ll suf­fer and it is still an open game.”
