Zidane vague on Bale's future after scrappy win

Zidane vague on Bale's future after scrappy win

"He's always been crucial for the team", Zidane said of his French compatriot. "Our fans know that the season is over".

"We have had many games like that this season, I don't think we lacked attitude but we did lack confidence and we didn't have a clear idea of how we wanted to play", said Madrid defender Nacho.

Bale and Modric made way for Lucas Vazquez and Kroos, and the latter contributed to creating the winning goal. He netted a late victor for a 3-2 victory over Huesca last weekend and scored in a 2-1 loss at Valencia on Wednesday.

Madrid were heading toward another defeat after a first half that Eibar dictated, helped by the hosts' lax defending and passing.

7 - Zidane pre-game claimed his players' "pride" should ensure a good performance but some of his biggest players appeared nearly embarrassed by the lack of anything to play for.

"We don't lack motivation, but it's odd not to be fighting for any competition at this stage of the season. We are not going to win anything this season, so playing is complicated". The visitors went ahead in the 39th minute after Real failed to impose themselves despite dominating possession.

Stumo, originally from MA , is the niece of consumer activist Ralph Nader, who called for a boycott of the 737 Max on Thursday. Boeing's procedures instruct pilots to leave the MCAS disconnected and continue flying manually for the rest of the flight.

Jose Angel Valdes exchanged passes with Marc Cucurella before finding Gonzalo Escalante in the area.

FW Marco Asensio, 6 - Suffered among the general apathy of the first half, but did provide an excellent hanging cross from the right wing for Benzema's equaliser.

It's no surprise that fans don't want to spend their money on watching Zidane's team in their final few "dead-rubber" La Liga games - because they've been disappointing throughout the campaign.

FW Karim Benzema, 8 - As so often this season, Benzema was Madrid's best performer and most likely source of a goal.

The team, who are out of the La Liga race, Champions League and Spanish Cup, are in need of reinforcements as they still look to properly replace Ronaldo and close the gap on Barcelona again next term.
