Zidane sick of Real 'robbery' jibes after Juve game

We did very well and we're in the semi-finals.' Real are fourth in the Liga standings and could be 18 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona by the time they play against Malaga.

Everyone has their own opinion on whether it was a penalty or not, I'm not going to discuss that, but I'm angry that people are talking of a robbery.

"When people talk about a robbery you realise that we are annoying a lot of people with what we are doing", said the Frenchman.

People spoke of a robbery after the penalty decision... It's like if the UEFA hand us the UCL title back in September, this get's me very mad. We deserved to qualify, without any doubt.

Malaga versus Real Madrid kicks off at 20:45 local time on Sunday and will be shown live in the United Kingdom (UK) on Sky Sports Football from 19:40 GMT.

Zidane refused to reveal his thoughts on the penalty award and believed there had been "too much" made of the incident, instead concerning himself with preparations for Madrid's return to league action. Nobody can change the history of this club, what it has achieved.

Having only secured victory over Real Madrid once since 1999, Malaga's 3-2 win over the Spanish giants in December 2012 was a historic day for the club.

But they are pursuing a 13th European Cup, which would make them the first team to win the trophy three years in a row since Bayern Munich between 1974 and 1976.

Real have confirmed that Castilla full-back, Alvaro Tejero, joined the first team for training and that Nacho is continuing to recover from an injury that has kept him sidelined since their game against Las Palmas on March 31. "Malaga are bottom of the table, and maybe do not deserve that from the games I have seen".

Roberto Rosales hit a free-kick just over the crossbar and sloppy Madrid play led to a great chance for the hosts just before the break as Casemiro was robbed by Iturra, but the midfielder fired into the legs of Keylor Navas.

"There is always an enormous effort in a big Champions League game, but we are ready now for La Liga", he said.
