Varane happy for Real Madrid to win ugly

Varane happy for Real Madrid to win ugly

The Galacticos clinched the advantage after the first-leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final encounter, with Marco Asensio grabbing the only goal of the game at Butarque.

Zinedine Zidane left out Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in a largely second-string Real side but not even the injection of youth could breathe life into his team until Asensio's late goal ended a run of three games without a win.

Zinedine Zidane's side are now fourth in La Liga, 19 points behind rivals and league leaders Barcelona.

The last game they had lost in any competition was in the Spanish Super Cup to Real Madrid on August 16.

"This season we aren't playing worse but things aren't going so well, and we enjoy it less when we don't win", Varane said. Other times we have played well and lost.

"We need a winning streak". We are playing the same as past year but things are not coming together.

This is a tie that Real Madrid simply can not afford to lose and in both previous rounds of the Copa, Los Blancos have won convincingly away from home before seeing lower league opposition hold them to a draw at the Bernabeu. "It will come, but right now we are focused on winning and improving".

"We can not say that we played a great game but we got an important result in a knockout round".
