Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane "happy" with Gareth Bale

Evaluation: "It was a unusual day, because of the wind".

"We have always shown that we have a lot of ambition and while the game will be a party for our supporters and everyone who loves Girona, for the players it's another game to prove we can compete with anyone".

"We will keep trying to move up, it's important to keep our momentum", Zidane said.

Madrid tied the match in the 11th minute.

Los Blancos moved up to third following their win over Leganes on Wednesday, and they'll aim to at least retain that position until the end of the season.

The Basque side are one of the three La Liga teams Cristiano Ronaldo has faced at the Santiago Bernabeu and failed to score a single goal against, along with Leganes and Tenerife.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "From there, we know that several conditions have to be given to win, but we can achieve it".

Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez seem to really like Karim Benzema and he does have a record of scoring a lot of goals but plenty of people have questioned if the Frenchman is good enough for Real Madrid. "No, anxious no. It is the situation we have now. I'm 45 years old and I'm in good shape to train", Zidane added. The other day against Betis, he scored.

Ultimately, the speed and power that set Bale apart on so many occasions turned out to be the very thing that has hurt him. He was not well, he played a great game like Asensio, everybody in general, and [Mateo] Kovacic.

Spanish winger Lucas Vazquez pulled the champions, who were without the service of Cristiano Ronaldo, back into the game five minutes later by latching on to a backheel by Casemiro and arrowing his finish into the far bottom corner. The forward dribbled around the defense before finding Mateo Kovacic, who laced a handsome through ball into the box. And that's it. We want to continue with what we are doing. We have had complicated moments and we have to take advantage to continue.

Zidane has refrained from criticising Bale but has also stopped short of giving him his full backing in recent weeks. "A little but of everything".

"I am happy with Bale, we have to take it slowly with him".
