“We've dropped two points but there's still a long way to go in this LaLiga campaign", added the madridista coach.
Zinedine Zidane appeared in the press room at the Alfredo Di Stéfano following the clash with Betis. The Real Madrid coach reflected: "We lacked aggression and we've dropped two points. We were good defensively but we struggled a bit in attack. Early on especially, we struggled to find our rhythm and we gave the ball away a lot. We lacked something today, we weren't clinical up top".
“The plan is to have Mendy and Kroos back for the Chelsea game but we'll see how they look from tomorrow. We have to recover now because that's two points dropped. We have to focus on Tuesday's game. There are still five games left in LaLiga, there's a long way to go. We'll keep fighting until the end. If it were the final day today, we would have lost it, but that's not the case".
“I don't understand how the referee makes his decisions but I'm not an official. I saw the handball but the referee is the one who has to give it and he hasn't done so".

We're ready for the game with Chelsea.

"Hazard played really well, he's feeling good and I'm happy to see him on the pitch. It's important to see him back with us. He's a quality player and we're going to enjoy him as much as we can until the end of the season".

"We'll see if he starts on Tuesday. Carvajal played 20 minutes the other day and got some more minutes today. He's in good shape and all the players are looking good".

"If we drop a point we're no good and everyone else is playing well. It's not like that, we're in good shape. It's going to be a difficult game on Tuesday, the most difficult of the season. We're ready to play these kinds of games. We were missing something today and couldn't win it. The other teams still have to play this round of games".
