Zinedine Zidane struggling to shore up Real Madrid defence

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is in direct contact with Chelsea ace Eden Hazard, it has been revealed.

The French worldwide limped off holding his left leg as Madrid edged out Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in a Champions League thriller on Wednesday.

Zidane, meanwhile, is confident that his team can turn their form around when the Champions League resumes in February. "In between it cost us a bit, but I am happy with the game and being through again".

Madrid's possible opponents in Monday's UCL round-of-16 draw are Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Roma, or Besiktas. But they still eased into an 2-0 lead inside 13 minutes through Borja Mayoral's neat clipped finish and Cristiano Ronaldo's 20 yard curler, which brought another record for the Portuguese as the first player ever to score in all six UCL group games in the same season.

"After the break, we'll be okay; we are looking forward to the draw on Monday even though a hard opponent is coming".

With the reigning UCL champions already sure to finish second behind group winners Tottenham, Zidane rotated his side.

Giving an update on defender Raphael Varane, who was forced off through injury, the Frenchman said, "He has hurt himself and we have to wait the scan results that will come tomorrow", Zidane said.

"It is obvious that I like playing in this competition a lot, but the most important thing is to be able to get into the next round once more", he said.

After Sevilla, Zidane's men jet off to Abu Dhabi for the Club World Cup before hosting Barcelona in the Clasico on December 23. "We have to look for solutions". "Marcos Llorente can play there, he has done it before".

On Keylor Navas' future, Zidane said that he was happy with the keeper's performance. "Keylor is back and I think he played well". It's a possibility like every year.

"There is a chance, we can sign players when the market opens on January 1", he said.

Real Madrid, who are placed fourth in the LaLiga table, now play Sevilla at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.
