Real Madrid coach Zidane: Valencia vs Barcelona will be decisive

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says there'll be no underestimating Malaga today.

Zidane also admits he'll be following the huge Valencia versus Barcelona game this weekend.

He said, "They're a team that don't deserve to be where they are in the table. They play good football and have won two of the last three matches. We know it'll be another difficult match and we'll have to play very well.

"Defensively the team is looking very good, we'll try to keep a clean sheet and score goals. It's the best way to win the game. I'm happy because it means we're doing well. It's not a matter of two or three players, but the whole team and we are doing better."

On Valencia-Barcelona, Zidane says he'll will be watching.

"One of the two will drop points. I'm interested in our match, get the three points and then see what happens on Sunday in that game. Something will happen for sure. I didn't imagine being 10 points behind. Every match is decisive. We're on the right track, we have a lot of energy and we're positive. We have a disadvantage, but these games are going to be important."
