Zidane: Happy to win and we don't care about the result of Barcelona and Atlético Madrid

A very important victory for Real Madrid in la Liga

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane expressed his happiness with his team's victory over Deportivo Alavés, in the match that brought them together in the 15th round of la Liga.

Sergio Ramos, the captain of Real Madrid, managed to open the scoring in the 52nd minute before Lucas Pérez equalized for Alavés from a penalty kick in the 65th minute, and the winning goal came for Real Madrid in the 69th minute scored by Dani Carvajal.

"We played in a very serious way, we knew we needed to fight from the beginning and that's what we did to get three precious points out of a difficult pitch," Zidane said after the win.

He added: "They made sure to attack after we scored the first goal, and they took advantage of our retreat to equalize, but we did not give up and we came back to the game again."

On the militão level and the involvement of Areola: "Éder played very well, and Areola's participation came by the decision of me, and he managed to save us just like Courtois does."

His team's position on the competition: "Regardless of the outcome of Barcelona and Atlético Madrid tomorrow, winning such confrontations gives us a new life and reflects the strength of our character."

His team's plan: "The digital form of the team is not important, what matters to me is the spirit we play and the way we deal with the ball and retrieve it in the defensive situation."

The win lifted Real Madrid to 31 points in the first place in la Liga table with 31 points, compared to 28 for Barcelona, who play tomorrow against Atlético Madrid in the same round.
