Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says they cannot afford to relax ahead of Monday's meeting with Granada.
The Frenchman mentioned it was the most difficult week of the season due to the physical toll, but assured that the only thing on the players' minds was taking each game as it comes.
Questioned as to whether Real Madrid were playing to the best of their abilities, Zidane felt the effort on the pitch was the most important.
"It doesn't bother me when people talk about things like this," he said.
He also paid tribute to his defence and goalkeeper, who have been spectacular of late.
"The team is always balanced and I'm happy with the defensive work of [Thibaut] Courtois and the whole team," Zidane said.
"This team always wants to achieve great things"
