Zinedine Zidane: Feeling good about Real Madrid's chances

Carlo Ancelotti's men currently top the Primera Division standings by a point ahead of rivals Barcelona, who they will face in the Copa del Rey final next month.

The capital club are also pretty much assured of their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating German side Schalke 6-1 in the first leg of their last-16 clash.

With several players hitting peak form since the turn of the year, Zidane is optimistic Real can win all three tournaments for the first time in their history.

"Of course you should discuss the possibility of winning the treble," he said in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Confidencial.

"When you play at Real Madrid you know what the objectives are. We are in three competitions and we are there.

"We must go on, knowing that it is very difficult because there are very good teams. If you remain focused and working well, we can achieve important things."

Real are unbeaten since suffering a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona on October 26 - a run of 28 games in all competitions.

"It's an awful lot of games," Zidane added. "You know what's the secret? The players. We also have a very good coach who leads the group."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
