Zidane wants to end the season with a perfect 15

Girona stand as the first opponent on Real Madrid's route to the end of the season, and Zinedine Zidane is determined to pick up a 100 percent record in the remaining 15 games.

That is the number of matches Los Blancos have left to play in all competitions this term, provided they reach the Champions League final.

It's no secret that the club's season to this point has been a disappointing one, one which will be marked by one of the worst defences of a league title in recent memory.

After lifting the trophy in the 2016/17 season, the Spanish giants now find themselves a grand total of 15 points behind Barcelona.

Such a domestic performance hasn't gone unnoticed by the club's hierarchy, however Zidane can redeem himself somewhat by lifting the Champions League once again.

It may seem somewhat harsh that a coach who has won two successive European titles is battling to keep his job, although that is simply the nature of the beast.

Friday's draw for the Champions League quarter-final will determine who Los Blancos face in the next round with the former Juventus midfielder keeping the whole 15 matches on his mind, and he intends to win them all.

It is how Zidne sees the 2017/18 season ending in a positive manner for the club, especially with him having never allowed his players to give up on LaLiga.

The ex-Castilla coach is refusing to look at the 15 points deficit from Barcelona, he isn't thinking about the title race and instead is merely looking to end the season in a strong fashion.

Following the victory at Paris Saint-Germain, a message came out of the Real Madrid dressing room of 'only four more matches' and there is a huge desire amongst the squad to win the Champions League once more.

These four matches are all seen as finals, and the first will take place on April 3 or 4, however Zidane has been left uneasy by such a mentality.

Whilst Los Blancos did eventually emerge victorious from their clash with Eibar on Saturday, the team were sloppy in parts and it was very much like they had realised the match wasn't as important as the Champions League ties to come.

Zidane is eager to banish such a mentality, and he will have to be successful if the team are to fulfil his goal of winning every single one of the remaining 15 matches.
