Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane spoke ahead of the Spanish Super Cup clash in Jeddah against Valencia.
Bale and Benzema out
We have important absences but the rest are here to respond to that. We're prepared to have an important game tomorrow.
Gareth Bale situation
I'm not looking beyond the Valencia game. We're focused on that and later we'll see if Bale can come or not. It's up to the medics, we accept that.
Who will stand in for Benzema?
Jovic is clearly an option. But as always, we'll see tomorrow.
Saudi Arabia Super Cup
We're here to play a game. We'll adapt to it, we're only thinking about that. For us it's a final. We're excited, we didn't come to Arabia for a stroll. It's an important tournament and we want to give our all.
It's good you're asking about him. He's the future, 21 years old, he's learning. He's a kid who wants to learn a lot. He'll score a lot of goals. What interests me is the player in general, the complete player that he can be. We have to go bit by bit with him.
Are Madrid the favourites?
All four teams are favourites. To go through we need to be the best Madrid we can be.
