Real Madrid coach Zidane: Asensio will get playing chances

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says he'll rotate when needed after victory over Eibar.

Despite their tight schedule, Real Madrid are not rotating their squad as often as usual.

"There are going to be changes, for sure, because we have lots of games," Zidane reiterated. "We've rotated a bit less lately, but everyone is in my plans. We haven't made many changes but it's like that for the moment."

One substitute Zidane made in the second half at Ipurua was Marco Asensio, who again struggled to make an impact on the game.

"He's not missing anything. He keeps working, bit by bit, and I think he's fine," Zidane said on the Spaniard. "As we've got games every three days, we have to make decisions and Marco wants to play more like everyone else. We're doing well as a team."
