Another great win for Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid, who ticked yet another win box, beating Eibar 4-0 away from home.
Real Madrid are slowly finding their feet under the French manager, who believes the Los Blancos’ recent turn up in form is all down to generosity.
Madrid have been thrown down the drain a couple of times this season, but have always found their way back. Saturday’s win leaving them undefeated in the last five games.
Karim Benzema (2), Sergio Ramos and Fede Valverde were all on target on the night, as Real Madrid obliterated Eibar at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, in what Zidane now concedes to be down to improvement and quality.
“We’ve worked a lot and we’ve improved in what we were doing,” Zidane told Movistar after the game.
“The match in Mallorca was tough for us but, after that point, we’ve been more generous and then, with the quality that we have, everything is easier.
“We have to continue because it’s going to be hard.”
On goalscorer Fede Valverde: “No, he’s not a new signing. What he’s doing is doing very well when he plays,” he said.
“I’m happy for him, but the important thing is that everyone is involved.”
“We made three changes from our last game, but nothing changed. The dynamic is good and this is important.”
Though he once again failed to get his name on the score sheet, Eden Hazard seems to finally be finding his feet at Real Madrid, and Zidane says everyone is happy to see the Belgian finally making an impact.
“He was impressive in the first half,” Zidane said.
“We’re happy because he’s going to be a very important player for Real Madrid, I’m sure.”
