Zidane wary of Las Palmas

Zinedine Zidane is not overlooking the threat of Las Palmas ahead of the side from the Canary Islands travelling to the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

Sergio Araujo – now on loan at AEK Athens – equalised for Las Palmas six minutes from time to earn a point at Estadio Gran Canaria in the reverse fixture in September and the French boss believes their style of play can cause any side problems.

"We played a great game there, and they equalised right at the end," recalled Zidane at his pre-match press conference.

"I expect another tough game. They are a team who know how to play, technically very good in midfield. We do not want them to play easily in our half.

“Jese? He is a very good player, has shown that before and he has a lot of potential.

"At PSG it did not go as he wanted, he did not get the pitch time to show his talent. I wish him the best, from Thursday, and I hope he returns to the level he had before. I like him as a player and a person."
