    Zinedine Zidane and Rafael Varane both agree that Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final tie against Juventus is far from over

    DIFFICULT TIE

    Varane: "Tomorrow will be a difficult match against a great team. They know that anything is possible in football so they are going to try to do everything to win. It's going to be a demanding match for us, our preparation isn’t going to change and we need to be competitive.

    "Dybala is an important player for this Juve team but he won’t be playing tomorrow, so we are going to focus on the players that will be there. They have a big squad and whoever plays tomorrow will make it a strong side. Juve will press us and they are not going to make it easy. It will be a difficult match.

    "Higuain is a great player, he knows how to find the back of the net and is a constant danger. Buffon is a legend, he is a wonderful person and I look forward to playing against him."

    CONTINUING STRONG FORM

    Zidane: "Our approach will not change for tomorrow’s match despite the result in Turin and we need to play another great match. We are playing well right now and we have to keep this up and continue our scoring streak, but also concede less.

    "We have only one final coming up, tomorrow’s match. We have to get through it before thinking about any other games.

    "Buffon is a great man and a great player, but we are only thinking about tomorrow’s match. We are just focused on beating Juventus.

    "I don’t think that Italian football is weak. La Liga is just at a very strong level right now. Tomorrow we have to prove that we are a good team because we haven't won yet and we are not thinking that we are already through. We have to keep playing at a high level against Juve."
