Two penalties helped Real Madrid to a healthy 3-0 win Thursday in the first leg of their Copa Del Rey tie with second tier Numancia, while Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw as the La Liga giants rested their stars against Celta Vigo. "Even now that we have a bit of difficulty, and because I remember that past year I did not get these kind of questions", Zidane said during press conference.

Ramos is expected to miss Real Madrid's trip to Vigo to play against Celta Vigo on Sunday at the Spanish League and he is expected to miss Real Madrid's games for the next three weeks.

"We wanted to continue our run of wins and although we were favourites we knew Levante were a strong side that hadn't lost away from home in the league since September", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.

Gareth Bale scored twice to give Real the lead after Celta had taken the lead through Daniel Wass.

Whatever Barca's result, Real Madrid go into their game in Vigo knowing nothing other than a win is any good for their title ambitions, but Zinedine Zidane's side also need to improve their football as well as their results. They are good players and I think what they are doing is very good and we understand the difficulty of tomorrow's game well.


"We are not going to go insane".

"It is how it looks from the outside - we are sad, angry and we feel like we are sinking", Brazilian defender Marcelo told reporters.

"We have to analyse our game in depth". If that changes by June or if we sit down and talk about it, we may sign players in certain positions.

The defending league champion finds itself 14 points off Barcelona's pace, albeit with a game in hand, and could use a boost to fortify its place among the league's Champions League places. We made many mistakes.
