“On Tuesday, we’re playing for our season,” said Zidane yesterday, with the record 10-time European champions trailing 0-2 after crashing to a shock first-leg defeat in Germany. The Frenchman sounded confident of turning things around with the backing of the home support at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“The supporters will be behind us. On Tuesday, we’re playing for our season. It’s a huge game and the fans like that too. I like it when things become difficult and I think the fans do as well,” said Zidane, adding he wasn’t worried about his future should Real bow out of Europe.

“My job is at stake all the time. When I put myself in it, I knew the rules. I’m at peace with that,” he added.
