"Wembley is an important place in the football world".

Zidane could give more team news at his pregame news conference at Wembley later on Tuesday.

"It's not been without its complications in the build-up, but we are very much prepared to do our job".

"The process is to finish the stadium this season so it's ready to play in next season".

Only Madrid's goalscorer Isco and forward Karim Benzema were exempt from criticism in Marca, which criticised the team's usual talisman Cristiano Ronaldo for only scoring once this campaign and called out Marcelo, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and captain Sergio Ramos for unconvincing displays.

But Zidane denied spirits are low in the Real camp and he is confident they will use the criticism as motivation to silence the doubters. When you are going to play the best team in the world, if you are not fearless it is hard, you start losing.

"It may be possible but I don't want to say 100 per cent as we have one more day". Nothing will change in our approach, we are going out to win. After a defeat of course people aren't happy but in some ways I like this. It's impossible to compare this game to the Champions League. Hamstrings take a long time to settle down fully, even if he does feel fit to play.

New Zealand bowl against India in 3rd ODI
The Indian skipper didn't stop there and went on to score his 32nd ODI century in his 202nd ODI encounter. Southee, Adam Milne and Mitchell Santner claimed two wickets each.

As if Tottenham's week hadn't been bad enough, with Mauricio Pochettino's men surrendering a two goal lead to lose 3-2 to London rivals West Ham in the League Cup in midweek and then losing to Manchester United in the Premier League, yesterday, they may now have to come to terms with being without one of their key players for the rest of the season. It's a hostile atmosphere in Napoli and they have a great mentality, although City are unsafe on the counter-attack, so I'll go for a high-scoring draw.

"He has a good opportunity tomorrow to play if I decide to put him in the starting XI, and make his Champions League debut (this season)", Pochettino said.

"To win La Liga you have to perform well all year".

"It's important we learn from this, work on what's gone wrong and keep building as a team because we're still in a fantastic position and we've been in good form".

Real Madrid have just published their squad list, and a lot of big names are out, with Dani Carvajal absent over the last few weeks because of a pericarditis. "I'm not anxious. We didn't expect this after winning four games in a row but we still want to win the league".

"Of course he's going to help us now".
