Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press ahead of his side's game against Girona at the Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday evening (20:45 CET).

A quiet week: "It's been a good chance for us to train and recover. The players have had two days off".

Neymar at Madrid: "Everyone has their own opinion. He's a great player but he doesn't play for Madrid. I can only speak about my players; those are your comments. I don't want to speak about a player who isn't one of ours. We respect PSG; it's not for us to talk about these things".

Is Bale sad? "No, he's not sad. He's happy to be at the club and has shown that. He's a key player for this squad". 

Juventus: "They're looking strong at the moment, as they were last year. They're very competitive. It will be a tough game, which is 50-50. We'll see after the first leg. Juve were very important in my playing career; avoiding them would've been nice, but that's what the draw has given us. I'm focused on the two legs and I'll leave aside my ties with the club".

Girona: "LaLiga is very competitive and there are no small teams. They're having a great season and we can all see what they've achieved. The most important thing, though, is how we approach the game. We have to win tomorrow".
