Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has said his team would “suffer” until the end of the La Liga title race, after they defeated Valencia 2-1 on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo headed Madrid in front and missed a penalty in the second half, before Dani Parejo curled in a 25-yard free-kick with eight minutes left.
There was still time for Marcelo to grab a late winner, to clinch all three points for Zidane’s side.
“After the Valencia goal we woke up again, and also the fans pushed the players on again. The game was different then.
“We know about this [the ability to win games late on], but I cannot explain why it happens. That is why football is so good – it’s exciting to win like that at the end,” Zidane said.
He also admitted that his players may have been distracted by Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg at home to Atletico Madrid.
“From my experience as a player, if you know that on Tuesday you have such an important game, you think you can just control the game maybe,” he said.
“But these fans, in difficult moments, help us to get more energy at the end of the game.”
