Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reflected on his side 0-0 draw against rival Barcelona and claims the result wasn't good for him.

Though Madrid looked really sharp and was the better side during the encounter, the 2016/2017 champion, however, couldn't register a goal and the only goal that was scored by Gareth Bale was ruled out for offside.

Madrid kept pressing throughout the 90 minutes but all their effort could only result in a draw after the final whistle.

Zidane has now reflected on the draw and claimed his side could have done something more but they couldn't take their chances.

'The result isn't good enough for me, we could've done something more, but that's football,' The Real Madrid said

'If you have chances, you have to score them, and this is what we were missing in certain instances.'

'We played a serious match, we were focused for the 90 minutes. It was a good Clasico, a good football match. It only lacked goals.'

'We have to be happy with the match because it's against a very good opponent.'

Zidane also praised his player's performance and revealed that they all had a good game.

 'Everyone played well, Bale hadn't played much and he had a great game,' Zidane added

'Kroos and Fede in his position, Raphael, Sergio... everyone played well.'

'The team put in a great shift. When you play a game like that in this stadium... we deserved a bit more.'
