Zidane: Real Madrid Dreaming Of A Sextuple

That title saw them add to their UEFA Super Cup and Spanish Supercopa victories earlier this season and Zidane is still holding out hope of a clean sweep, with the Copa del Rey, LaLiga and the Champions League all still available to them.

Despite Real dominating the match at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi, it was the team from the United Arab Emirates who took a shock 41st-minute lead through Romarinho.

In total Madrid had 18 shots on goal in the first half, but were shocked four minutes before the break when the hosts caught the Real defense cold on the counter-attack.

Real will go for their fifth trophy of the year when they face Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday.

Real Madrid was tied with Al Jazira in a Club World Cup semifinal before Gareth Bale subbed into the match. They carried out a series of possession and pressing exercises, shots and goal and games on reduced-size pitches.

A better advert for VAR came when a second "goal" for Al Jazira was disallowed for offside.

Madrid scored five in the first half against Sevilla on Saturday and could easily have had another handful but for some exceptional goalkeeping from Ali Khaseif. "We want to give our all and try and lift this trophy", Luan, who won the Olympic Medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games with Brazil, told press on Friday. It's unusual not to score when you create that many chances.

'Any opponents can get a goal against you. We got the win, though not without digging deep.

"It's a very good time for "madridismo".

'There's no such thing as an easy win in football.
