Barca not more dangerous after PSG triumph, says Zidane
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane does not think Barcelona’s historic midweek comeback to dump Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League will have any bearing on the Liga title race.
Luis Enrique’s side scored three times in seven minutes to secure a 6-1 win over the Ligue 1 champions at Camp Nou on Wednesday, ensuring they overturned a 4-0 first-leg deficit.
Madrid’s faltering form – corrected to an extent by a 4-1 win at Eibar last weekend – has allowed Barca to replace them at the summit of Spain’s top flight, although Zidane’s men have a game in hand.
Speaking ahead of today’s match with Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Frenchman insisted bitter rivals Barcelona do not prompt increased fear among his players on the back of their dazzling feat of escapology.
