Malaga 0 Vs Real Madrid 1

'People can write or say what they want but no-one can change the history of this club, which is the best Real Madrid will take a trip to Malaga in their next La Liga match.

Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press on Saturday about the dramatic victory over Juventus in the Champions League quarter-final, the semi-final draw against Bayern Munich, and the LaLiga match against Málaga on Sunday.

The Spain worldwide seems to have usurped Bale in Zinedine Zidane's preferred XI, but Isco's future at Madrid has not always appeared set in stone.

Team sheets are in!

Isco is a fantastic player who should be retained by Real Madrid "for many years", according to team-mate Casemiro. First up Real Madrid!

The assessment particularly frustrated Isco because Barcelona's stunning comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in last season's Champions League - complete with its own contentious decisions - was "historic" in the eyes of the same reporter.

Málaga are bottom of the league and maybe they don't deserve to be there.

"There's no reason for us to believe that this game will be any more hard than the rest of them". "I've seen them (Malaga) and their position is surprising". They played brilliantly and deserved to go through, no doubt.

However, two strikes in three minutes from former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City man Roque Santa Cruz meant even Karim Benzema's finish with eight minutes remaining was not enough to deprive the Estadio La Rosaleda faithful a Christmas to remember.

Malaga are 14 points adrift in the table but Zinedine Zidane remains wary of the dangers of this evening's opposition.
