"We came into the game on the back of a number of good performances and we've dropped two points here, but we've got to keep doing what we're doing", he explained.
Zinedine Zidane took to the media room at the Martínez Valero following on from his side’s meeting with Elche: “We created a number of chances in the first half to have got that second goal, which would have allowed us to be more relaxed, but when they got the equaliser, everything became that bit more difficult for us. They dropped deeper and we struggled in the second half. That's just the way things go in football and we've got to keep going. If you look at the first half, it's a case of two points dropped, but we have to keep on working hard”.

“Everyone's going to end up dropping points. This is a very tough league. We had produced a number of good performances coming into tonight’s match and we've dropped two points here, but we have to keep on doing what we’re doing because it's a very long league season and there’s a long way to go”.

 What was missing?
“A second goal. We had the chances to have scored the second goal in the first half and that would have allowed us to be more relaxed, but we didn't manage to do so. They then ended up scoring and were very strong defensively”.

Ødegaard & Hazard
“We made three changes tonight and Martin wasn't involved, but there's no issue there. Hazard returned tonight, but he needs time and games under his belt. It's a case of taking it step by step”.
