“Atletico were the better team in the first half and we were the better team in the second, I think we deserved it,” Zidane told a press conference. “We had chances and got back into it.

“At the end of the day the important thing for us was to put in another good second-half display and change the game, and we did that. It’s a point, we’re alive and we’re going to keep fighting.

“Our aim is to keep fighting. There’s still a long way to go in LaLiga and a lot of points at stake, we’re going to fight until the end. Things can change quickly. We’re doing the right things.

“We know we can improve and that’s what we’re going to do. We wanted to play better in the second half because the first half wasn’t good. The attitude was very important to change things.”

Real Madrid’s next fixture would be Elche, while Atletico face off with Supercopa de Espana holders Athletic Club.
