Los Blancos suffered their fourth loss of the LaLiga season after going down to the Yellow Submarine on Saturday afternoon.
Zidane's charges could fall 19 points behind FC Barcelona on Sunday if the bitter rivals defeat Real Sociedad.
"It is a bad moment, nothing more.
"We are hurting from this blow, but we are not going to change our mentality, to move forward, and to fight.
"It could be mental as it hurts when you do not win.
"We are Real Madrid. There is still life, hope, and in football the good thing is you have another game every three days.
"The results are very negative recently. But we can change this, get out of this, by winning games, and winning well. I hope that is Thursday, or Sunday.
"In football there are two teams, and what you must do is score a goal more than the opponent. We tried to do that today."
