Real Madrid still searching for best form despite Dortmund win - Zidane

Real Madrid possible Sevilla

EDEN HAZARD has allegedly been contacted by Zinedine Zidane over a move to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is convinced that the defending champions will be back in form by February, when the knockout stages of the Champions League kick-start.

Madrid's possible opponents in Monday's UCL round-of-16 draw are Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Roma, or Besiktas.

Los Blancos sealed second spot in the group on Wednesday night after a 3-2 win against struggling German side Borussia Dortmund.

"We're playing OK and I don't care what people are saying on the outside".

"On Monday we will see who we get, but knowing that it will be a hard opponent", Zidane said.

Back-up Jesus Vallejo is also a doubt for the match with a knock, meaning Nacho is the club's only available senior central defender and Zidane said he was toying with the idea of using midfielder Marcos Llorente in the backline.

Arsenal lead Group H with 10 points from five matches and will emerge as group winners regardless of the result against Borisov. Wenger's side are fifth in the Premier League with 28 points from 15 games and one outside the top four.

"(Varane) has hurt himself and we will have to see what it is. "Now we have to focus on LaLiga and the Club World Cup, there is plenty of time for the Champions League".

"He doesn't think it's a serious problem, but he is definitely out for Saturday", the French coach added.

"We will find a solution", Zidane said. "[Midfielder Marcos] Llorente knows this position, has played there before, we will see".

On Keylor Navas' future, Zidane said that he was happy with the keeper's performance. Every year, things were said about me but I stayed. "Regarding signings, I have two goalkeepers and I'm very happy with both of them", There has been ongoing speculation regarding the interest of Los Blancos in signing Kepa Arrizabalaga in January.

The Portuguese forward became the first player to score in all six Champions League group games on Wednesday, with nine in total, however it has been a different story in La Liga, where he has scored two in 10 appearances.

There is still no news on whether or not Gareth Bale will be fit for a vital game against a Sevilla side that is fifth in the table level on points with Real Madrid and eight points behind FC Barcelona.
