Zidane told me apart from Messi, I'm the best left footer - Asensio

Lionel Messi Juventus

Ronaldo was dismissed during the first leg of its Supercopa de Espana triumph over Barcelona and received a five-match ban for shoving the referee.

"The same thing happened previous year so we're not anxious at all, the opposite", said Zidane, who is the first coach to successfully defend the European Cup since 1990 and has won seven trophies since taking charge of Real in January 2016.

"Looking at our squad, we may be missing a number nine", Zidane said ahead of the Champions League clash with APOEL.

Filipe Luis was more complimentary of Ronaldo's Ballon d'Or rival Lionel Messi, but insisted he is too focused on winning to be awestruck by his opponents.

"I prefer Cristiano to be with us always". "He is a leader and always wants to win".

"I was a little impressed, because Messi is a piece of a footballer". He transmits that [to his team-mates].

"We can't be happy with the results, especially the last one, but we're not going to change the way we work, just as we didn't past year".

Before the worldwide break, they played out a frustrating 2-2 draw with Valencia.

"I believe I have been playing very well and this has been replicated by the fans and the club who have shown me a lot of love". "It would have been nice to have kept Morata, but we have to understand that he wanted to play more minutes and made a decision to leave". "Cristiano hadn't done anything until the last two months [of the season]".
