On the La Liga title race, the Los Blancos got a major boost as late goals from Eder Militao and Casemiro handed them all three points in their 2-0 victory over Osasuna.
A defensive playing style from the visitors gave Zidane’s men a lot of difficulties as they had to remain patient in the game.
“Today is a good victory. My celebration at the end of the game was for my players,” Zidane told his post-match interview withDiario AS
“In the first half, we had five chances to score and that is frustrating.
“I told the team at half time the goal was going to come but we had to stay patient.
“I am happy for them, as they are the ones out on the field suffering.”
The French coach also confirmed his key midfielders, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, were rested ahead of their crucial Champions League clash with Chelsea.
