The statement of real Madrid coach Zinadine Zidane,  which he calls a joke might just be a joke at the moment until the reality comes, to prove it is not a joke.

The joke from Zidane is a statement he made that, his team will beat the current leaders of the English Premier League in the last 16 of the Champions League, if they meet.

There is no doubt that the Real Madrid coach is already basking in the euphoria of what might be the outcome of the draw of round of sixteen which takes place on Monday.

Before now,  the La Liga giants had already secured their knockout berth before their 3-1 win over Club Brugge on Wednesday.

The two sides met in the 2018 final, with Real Madrid winning 3-1 on the night.
