“We had to soldier on against a resilient, fast-paced side and home support who pile the pressure on”, he added.
Zinedine Zidane spoke in the press room at the Sánchez Pizjuán following Real Madrid's win which sealed their place in the Copa del Rey quarter finals: “It was a tough game, very draining. They played incredibly well and deserved more from the game in truth. After that first goal we eased off a bit and they were able to put two past us. In the end we were able to get a draw. Over the course of the two games we deserved to go through”.

“We really had to soldier on against a resilient side who are fast-paced and home support who really pile the pressure on. Sunday will be yet another game where we will have to fight. That is always going to be the case against Sevilla, who are tough opposition to face. It is no coincidence that they are second in LaLiga, that is all down to their ownhard work. I'm not sure what is going to happen on Sunday, but we will have to dig deep”.

“I can't be happy about that and nor can he. It is not nice when they insult you. We can't avoid it however. Sergio played his part in the game and I’m not thinking about anything else, it is an ugly thing to happen but it can't be avoided. He played here for a long time. He is from here and I'm certain he'll be hurt by that. These things can happen from time to time and neither he nor his family will be happy with that”.
