The four-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored 18 goals in 23 appearances against Atletico since joining Los Blancos in 2009.

However, the Portuguese forward has been criticised for some of his displays this season, but Zidane claims the player is always ready for the big games.

"He knows, as we all do, but even more so Cristiano, that in the big games he is always there," Zidane said at a press conference.

"I don't know if it is because he's accustomed to it, but his ambition makes him want to play well in the big games like every player.

"That's what he trains for, he's been training very well. He's ready for the final stretch of the season.

"But not just the big games, any game he plays in he wants to score and be a big player for his team.

"It's very positive for everyone, the energy that he generates."
