Real Madrid coach Zidane confirms new contract

Real Madrid coach Zidane confirms new contract”

Ronaldo put Madrid back ahead with a spectacular strike but was dismissed within two minutes of that goal and risked further punishment when he pushed the referee in the back before departing the field.

Ronaldo gave the referee a push in the back after seeing the red card that meant he will miss Wednesday's return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"We played a great match". His ejection didn't wind up mattering to this game in the end, as Marco Asensio made it 3-1 Real Madrid in the 90th minute, and they'd hang on for the win. "Here you live day by day and it could well be that I am not here in a year", said Zidane.

"They scored three, but it was a game in which we did well and we had chances".

While Zidane's Madrid took a big step to a second title to start the season after beating Manchester United in the European Super Cup, it was a dismal debut for Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde.

Neymar's world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain has removed one of Barca's main goal threats, although Valverde disputed the idea his side appear to be lacking a cutting edge going into the new season. "There will always be ups and downs, but we are in such a good moment that we are enjoying it a lot", he concluded.

"Their second goal really hurt us".

Barcelona's night to forget started when Pique slid to defend a cross by Marcelo, only to redirect the ball into the corner of his net.

Soon after that, the more negative side of Ronaldo was on display, though.

Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele have been tipped to help fill the void at Barca and Valverde said: "We are Barcelona and we want to have the best team". "There is no doubt that we have to sign players".
