Zinedine Zidane congratulates Barcelona after Real Madrid are held to a draw
Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane congratulated bitter rivals Barcelona after the Catalan giants held out for a 2-2 draw despite going down to ten men in the final moments of the first half of their La Liga clash on Sunday. “I thought we played well in the first half against 11, playing well, creating chances and scoring a goal. In the second half it was 10 against 11 and it was worse for us. We had to be patient but we were not effective in the last metres but we didn’t lose, and we need to congratulate Barcelona,” he told reporters on Sunday.
