Soccer – Real handed Zidane warning

Head coach Zinedine Zidane has told his Real Madrid side, who are 4/5 with bet365 to win the competition, that their Champions League semi-final tie with city rivals Atletico has yet to be decided. A Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick powered holders Real to a 3-0 first-leg victory in the Bernabeu, leaving them very well-placed to reach the final of the competition for the third time in four years. However, Zidane, who has won the Champions League as both a player and manager with Real, is taking nothing for granted ahead of the second leg in the Vicente Calderon next Wednesday. He told Mediaset Premium: "We are happy with what we've done so far, but we are not in the final yet. "We scored (three) and above all kept a clean sheet, because we know how important away goals are. "We need to play a perfect game at their place in order to go through. We will suffer at their place for sure."
