Following a week of huge pressure after their 0-1 defeat to Real Betis, the French boss was simply relieved to come away from the match with three points in the bag after an impressive brace from Dani Ceballos took attention away from another largely stuttering performance.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane joked Friday that he was "jinxed" as his team comes under attack for their misfiring start to this season's la Liga campaign. The club confirmed via press release yesterday afternoon the Brazilian defender had suffered a grade two hamstring injury (mild tear) during the shock 1-0 loss to Real Betis this week.

Sevilla is five points behind, followed by Real Madrid at seven points adrift after it won at Alaves 2-1. "Today we needed the three points".

They are under additional pressure after their lacklustre start in the league, lying fifth on 11 points with rivals Barcelona top on 18.

"When you go away having only scored two goals for the chances we had it isn't a lot", added Zidane.

"It's true we've never won here and it's a challenge for us". Tomorrow we face each other (but) I'm with Madrid and he's with Alaves. I hope it's nothing serious and he'll be able to play on Tuesday.

"We're okay. We got a victory last time out and we're happy to play on a handsome pitch, where they breathe Champions League football", he told a news conference. We will both do everything possible to try to win, although I'm not going to play and he is. Ultimately, like always, he'll make the difference.

"If we are not brilliant sometimes, this can happen".

He said he was aware of his role in the team this season, after stealing the limelight last season when he played at Alaves on a loan.
