Real Madrid-Sevilla live: LaLiga

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press on Tuesday ahead of Los Merengues' rearranged LaLiga fixture against Celta Vigo at Balaídos.

Real travel to Vigo to face Celta on Wednesday evening knowing that four points from their final two games will seal their first Primera División title since 2012.

Zidane's pre-match press conference:

Two decisive games left in LaLiga: "We're ready. We have two 'cup finals' left in LaLiga and physically we're in really good shape."

'Briefcase payments': "I don't have anything to say in answer to that. I'm only thinking about the game and nothing else. The Celta side that go out there will do so as the professionals that they are."

Celta: "It'll be a tough game, because they're a good side. Just like the Sevilla game: we knew that they were really tough opposition. It'll be the same this time, just as it'll be at Málaga on Sunday. But, as always, I'm interested in what we do."

Cristiano Ronaldo: "He'll be with us."

Zidane during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

Gareth Bale's chances of making the Champions League final: "Today isn't the time to talk about that. He's a lot better, he's out on the training pitch and that's positive. But right now we have to focus on the Celta game, and Bale won't be with us for that."

Players one booking away from a ban: "If they have to play, they will do so, and they'll do everything in their power to avoid being shown a yellow card."

LaLiga-Champions League double: "We're not thinking about that. Just the Celta match."

Keylor Navas: "We have three very good goalkeepers. Next year I don't know what'll happen, but right now we're happy with all three of them and they get on really well with each other."

James Rodríguez's future: "He's here with us. He didn't train [on Monday or Tuesday] because of a heavy knock, but he's here and we're only thinking about the three games we have left."

Álvaro Morata's apparent touchline tantrum against Sevilla: "He wasn't angry with me. He was angry about something else, I don't know what. It happens. We've spoken and it's done."
