"We have to work to improve defensively," added the Madrid coach.

Zidane analyzed in the press room of the Ceramics stadium the meeting of Real Madrid against Villarreal: “In football there can be mistakes. I keep the positive feeling. Removing the first 15 minutes, in which we were not, we played a good game. When you get two goals it is important to return to the game. It is the positive point. We create chances to score and you have to try to score more goals. ”

“The final 30 minutes of the first part and in the second we control the game. It is true that they came twice and scored two goals. They are things that happen and we have to work to improve our defensive things. We know we are going to create things offensively. The positive point is the reaction, in the end it is important not to lose. ”

Scheme with two front

“It was today's plan to play against this team knowing they had problems at the centers. We wanted to put more weight up with Luka (Jović) and Karim. We did not get the goals we were looking for, but we can play with this scheme because we have two good strikers. I am happy with the game in general and with the reaction. We cannot be happy in the sense that we are always looking for victory, but we must think about the next game. ”

The start of the match

“We enter with little intensity. In a match it is always important to start strong. Then, the final 30 minutes of the first part were better. We tied before the break and it was important. ”
