Not Done yet! Zidane Claims Title Hopes Alive Despite Betis Draw


Los Blancos could end the weekend five points behind leaders Atletico Madrid after a frustrating evening at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano

Zinedine Zidane insists Real Madrid’s title hopes are not over despite being held to a goalless draw by Real Betis.

Los Blancos dominated possession and managed 17 shots at goal, but the closest they came to breaking the deadlock was Rodrygo’s miss-hit cross that struck the bar.

The draw means Real missed the chance to draw level on points with leaders Atletico Madrid, who can move five points clear with victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

When asked by reporters whether the Liga title was now lost, Zidane said: “I don’t think so. It’s true that there are two points lost today but I don’t think so.

“I think we have to continue, we’ve tried, we’ve missed something offensively, with the ball, but I don’t think the league is decided”.
