Zidane: El Clasico Win Could Be Turning Point

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was delighted to beat Barcelona on Saturday but doesn't want his side to get carried away.
 
 
Los Blancos came back from a goal down at Camp Nou in El Clasico to beat their arch rivals 2-1 and end their 39-game unbeaten run.
 
Zidane believes the victory could mark a turning point in their season, but added that the win was still only worth three points.
 
"This can be a turning point -- it is very important, for the rest of the season, for our spirit," Zidane said. "And just before we play in the Champions League in Germany. 
 
"Before the game, we wanted to keep doing what we are doing, preparing well. These are three points -- it is a derby, it is better to win it, but these are [just] three points.
 
"We are seven points back, now we must think about next game, which is not in La Liga. Then on Saturday we will think about La Liga [at home to Eibar], and the three points, just the same.
 
"Nothing else than thinking about winning the next game. First we must pass out Atletico Madrid, we are still third in the table. And nothing more.
 
"Then we will see what happens. There are still games to play. To win here is an enormous prize for all the players. They played an enormous game."
