Zinedine Zidane proclaimed Real Madrid to still be “alive” in the LaLiga title chase.
The chase took a surprising turn thanks to Karim Benzema’s late equalizer against Atletico Madrid.
Moments after Atletico Madrid threatened to go 2-0 up, Benzema powered the ball past Jan Oblak for a 1-1 draw that holds Madrid’s title defence hopes alive.
Thus, Benzema scored a late equalizer to hold Real Madrid in a three-team title race with Atletico Madrid at the top of LaLiga.
“It is deserved, we had chances at the end. We could have scored more, but the good thing was we had a different second half and changed the game,” Zidane told a post-game news conference.
“It is a point, we are alive. We are going to keep fighting. It is a correct result, we believed until the end that it could be recovered.”
