Zidane oversees final Madrid session ahead of Athletic game

Zinedine Zidane oversaw the final Real Madrid training session ahead of Tuesday's LaLiga clash against Athletic Club in Valdebebas.

Real Madrid face Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday looking to consolidate a return to form that has taken them up to third place in La Liga, three points off pacesetters Real Sociedad and Atletico, and into the last 16 in Europe where they face Atalanta.

"Nothing has changed, we keep working hard every day and we want to keep on doing what we are doing," Zidane told a news conference on Monday.

"We know we always have to be the best team on the pitch but the opponents play too and sometimes it's not easy to make life hard for them the whole time. We're a great side and should be consistent but, as far as we're concerned, nothing has changed."
