Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has said his aim is for his team to play a good game against Juventus in Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final clash in Turin.
Zidane also stated that he believes the game will be “totally different” to the last time the two sides met, in the final in Cardiff last year. Real won 4-1 to lift their 12th European Cup/Champions League title.
“It’s going to be a totally different game because these teams are different and are not anything like the ones in Cardiff,” Zidane said at a news conference.
“It went well for us there, but games never repeat themselves.
“Our season’s not been as good as we thought it would be since then. Our aim is to play a good game because we know we can do and we’re ready for it, but what happens will not have anything to do with what happened in Cardiff,” he added.
Zidane also vowed not to set his team up to get a result in the first leg, which might help them back in Madrid.
“I don’t ever send my players out to make calculations,” he said.
“I don’t look at statistics much and I don’t look at wins and losses from the past. This is a new game and we need to prepare well for it.”
