El Classico: Madrid Set To Retaliate Barça's Dishonour -Zidane

Gareth Bale

Real Madrid's French coach Zinedine Zidane on Thursday began preparations for the upcoming el Clasico match against Barcelona.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has had to face nearly weekly questions from the media about Benzema's form and where it left his future at the club, and the forward came in for renewed scrutiny after a poor display last Saturday against Leganes.

"We will wave to him, congratulate him and give him the best of luck for the future". On the possibility of his players looking to avoid injury ahead of the Liverpool clash, Zidane added: "We can't think about that".

"Real Madrid have now started preparations for el Clasico in La Liga", the club announced on its website.

For James, the chance for revenge will roll around again, though, with red the colour the Colombian will be wearing if the European juggernauts run into each other one more time next season.

"If I say it didn't hit me [on the hand] I'd be lying, but football is like that", said the Brazilian. He always does his job and never gives up. "For my team and for you fans". "Not just because of the goals, but his overall performance was fantastic".




Joshua Kimmich scored for Bayern in the third minute to set the stage for another comeback at the Santiago Bernabeu, like the one Juventus almost pulled off in the quarterfinals before Ronaldo converted an injury-time penalty. Benzema's second came after a awful mistake by Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, who misplayed a back pass into the area and let the ball go underneath him as he lost his footing.

Kimmich netted from inside the area after Madrid captain Sergio Ramos failed to clear a ball crossed into the area by Corentin Tolisso.

On the reason for not giving Barcelona a guard of honour, he said, "I'm not the one who decides, after the Club World Cup I understand that it wasn't important for them to do a guard of honour", Zidane explained.

James, who has a two-year loan deal at Bayern, chipped in with a goal and an assist over the two legs, but Real Madrid nevertheless emerged victorious 4-3 on aggregate. But it was a lot better in the second half.

"We are very disappointed because we made an outstanding game", said Bayern coach Heynckes.
