No need to panic: Zidane calls for calm after Betis loss

The 31-year-old's comments came following Los Blancos' last minute defeat to underdogs Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, in a fixture where Cristiano Ronaldo's return to La LIga action was overshadowed by Antonio Sanabria's 94th minute victor.

Zidane said in his post-match statement: "Mood in the dressing room?"

"We need to remain calm".

On Wednesday, they lost 1-0 against an increasing confident Real Betis and their cerebral, tactically astute manager Quique Setien, who held Madrid twice last season when managing Las Palmas.

The result means Real are without a win in their three league games at the Bernabeu this season, having also drawn with Valencia and Levante.

Several Chinese clubs were also linked with a big-money move for Aubameyang, who said he was never close to making a switch to the Chinese Super League.

"My job is more than just scoring goals - you have to be involved in team play, linking-up with teammates, creating chances, working spaces and here the scrutiny and demands are higher than anywhere".

A win for Real Madrid would see Los Blancos equal Barcelona's record of 12 straight victories away from home in La Liga, set between 2010 and 2011. And the feel-good factor around Atletico following their 1-0 victory over Malaga to open their new 68,000 capacity home at the weekend continued with a commanding display in their fifth away trip in six games so far this season. "I am not surprised that they don't award penalties for us, but that they do for Barcelona". "When the opponent scores like that at the end it hurts", the Real Madrid coach added.

It was no fluke; the result of a patient build up involving nine of the visiting players. We'll do our best to win it, and in our next home game in the League, we have to do everything to win it.

Deep into stoppage-time, striker Antonio Sanabria headed home the match-winner to stun the crowd and secure three points for Los Verdiblancos.

Even the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo on his return from a five-match domestic ban could not break Betis' resistance, as Adan produced stunning saves from Isco, Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale.
