The Portuguese superstar blazed a spot-kick over the bar in Los Blancos' 4-0 win over Sevilla before the break, and also missed a penalty in Portugal's 1-0 loss to Bulgaria.

However, the Los Blancos manager has now about his top goal scorer heading into El Clasico this evening.

"No I don't worry about Cristiano's recent penalties," Zidane said at his pre-match news conference.

"Sometimes you miss, it is part of football. It can happen from time to time. He answered everyone versus Belgium.

"He has come back well after the break and I am happy with him."

Zidane also showed supp port to striker, Karim Benzema, who was left out of the recent France squad.

"I don’t want to avoid the question but now I don't think about Benzema with the French national team," he added. 

"Only about him versus Barca.

"You know what I think about Karim and what he can do for Real Madrid."
