Real Madrid: Kiko Casilla 7 (out of 10), Jesus Vallejo 6, Theo Hernandez 6, Achraf Hakimi 6, Casemiro 5, Mateo Kovacic 6, Marcos Llorente 7, Dani Ceballos 6, Karim Benzema 7, Gareth Bale 8.

Asier Garitano's men kept pressing Real as much as possible and they finally got a lifeline on 66 minutes. Nordin Amrabat dribbled into the right side of the box on that play.

Zidane opted to rest a number of big names including Cristiano Ronaldo with this week's Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich in mind, and the Welshman made the most of his opportunity.

Tottenham have been linked with a sensational move to re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

"We need them and I'll do everything possible so that they know that they're important and that they're not affected by whats said on the outside".

San Jose became only the second player to ever score two own goals in a La Liga match at the Anoeta Stadium, putting through his own net early in the second half before Raul Garcia scored a consolation from the penalty spot. "I'm not going to talk about motivation because having the chance to make the final of the Champions League says it all".
