Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to avoid UEFA ban for tunnel view

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to avoid UEFA ban for tunnel view

As for Malaga, they should welcome back Ignasi Miquel back into the side, whilst Diego Gonzalez is a doubt after suffering a knock in training on Friday.

Zinedine Zidane is furious at the "shameful" way Juventus talked about Real Madrid after the Champions League quarter-final.

"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 and their position is surprising".

But despite the changes made by the Frenchman, Madrid eased to a fifth consecutive away victory in all competitions thanks to a sublime showing from the increasingly influential Isco.

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


English referee Michael Oliver then awarded a contentious spot-kick in added time after ruling Mehdi Benatia had bundled Lucas Vazquez over in the box.

Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was one of the main players to criticise the referee, while some feel that Los Blancos are favoured in the Champions League.

Real may have just scraped through in the Champions League and will now turn their attention to the league.

Otherwise, Real's only injury problem concerns Nacho Fernandez, who is expected to miss all of April due to a thigh problem, per Marca.

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.

"However, we have so much work to do in focusing on ourselves, that the rival takes more of a back seat". It's going to be hard, but we'll go there to win and they're going to give it all.
