Zinedine Zidane confessed he was “a bit angry” with Real Madrid’s failure to break down Getafe in Thursday’s 0-0 La Liga draw, expressing frustration at his substitutes for not creating more.
Madrid made it three away games without a win as they failed to find a breakthrough against Jose Bordalas’ stubborn side at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, where Karim Benzema came closest to scoring for the visitors.
The result was a more welcome one for Getafe, who stay fourth in the table despite Sevilla’s 5-0 thrashing of Rayo Vallecano, meaning Champions League qualification remains in their hands with four games to go.
Madrid, meanwhile, are almost certain to finish third and largely have one eye on next season already, yet Zidane was still hoping for a better attacking display from his players.
“We had chances to score many times and we didn’t,” the Madrid boss said, as quoted by AS. “We’re a bit annoyed with the result. We deserved a lot more.
“The players played a very good game. We were good defensively and we weren’t at risk. We were just missing the goal to win the game. We’re a bit angry for not winning.”
