Levante coach Juan Muniz scoffs at Real Madrid crisis talk

Levante coach Juan Muniz has scoffed at claims Real Madrid are in crisis.

Zinedine Zidane's side are 19 points behind league leaders Barcelona, although they have played a game less, heading into the clash at Ciutat de Valencia.

"It's true that it's good to face the big teams when they have to play in the Champions League, but crises for big teams are ones the little teams would like," Muniz told a news conference.

"With [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Gareth] Bale, [Karim] Benzema or Isco, the crises are different. Losing a match is a crisis for Madrid. They are one of the best sides in the world; the crises are relative.

"When a machine works well, it goes to Mestalla and wins 4-1."
