Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was under no pretensions over his team’s Champions League performance against Chelsea. They were beaten 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, 3-1 on aggregate, but it could have been far greater.

“They deserved the victory,” admitted Zinedine Zidane. “We have tried but they’ve deserved it. We have to be proud to have come this far and to congratulate Chelsea.

“If my players have played it’s because they were ready for the 90 minutes. We lacked strength up front, but I’m very proud of my players. Today is a hard moment, but tomorrow we will work again thinking about the next game.”
