Real Madrid coach Zidane insists title race not over

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists the title race isn't over.

Real meet Valencia later today.

"We want to keep doing what we're doing. The vibes are really good and tomorrow's is a game in which we have to prove our worth and continue to grow as a team. The players are really committed to the cause. We've had a good week and have to keep working hard because we face a really demanding game," said Zidane.

"There are 48 points left to play for and we're going to fight and play good football to try and win the games. We can only control what we do out on the pitch and we're going to give our all until the end of the season.

"Yes, I'm concerned about the injuries, it's not down to bad luck. We really don't like not having the players available. What we want is to try and get them back. We've got Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez back for tomorrow and I hope that we're gradually able to welcome them all back.

"I always want to have my players available to train with me because that's really important for a coach."
