Former referee Andujar Oliver has told Radio MARCA that Nacho's controversial opening goal in Real Madrid's 2-1 win against Sevilla on Sunday night was perfectly legal.
The Cucuta-born attacker applauded all four sides of the stadium as he left the pitch in what would be his final home game should he transfer after three seasons in the Spanish capital.
"He will be in the squad for the last two league games", Zidane confirmed.
James Rodriguez waved the fans a long goodbye, seeming as if it is his last game at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane asserted that his side are not taking the La Liga title for granted.
We'll all be unashamedly supporting Celta tomorrow night but can they sink Madrid and turn the title back in Barcelona's favour?
Real will hardly need reminding that they could only draw 2-2 at Celta after losing 2-1 at the Bernabeu in January.
"It's very simple, we're ready and we have two finals to play before the league finishes".
Whatever happens in Vigo, the title will be decided in the final round of games next weekend after Barcelona brushed aside Las Palmas 4-1 in the Canary Islands.
Real did not dominate the first half with an iron grip, however, and Celta enjoyed good chances to level, with Keylor Navas doing well to deny Daniel Wass when his free-kick was hit with venom.
The game against Celta was originally scheduled to be played on February 5 but was postponed because heavy winds damaged the roof of the Balaidos Stadium, making it unsafe for players and spectators. "It's going to be complicated, just like it was against Sevilla and like it will be against Malaga", Zidane said. "I saw that the players were out of position and I made a decision to take the shot".
In the last 10 games, Real Madrid have scored an average of 3,1 goals per game and have conceded 1,4 goals per game.
But in terms of the team's overall structure and balance, allowing them to play effectively as a well organised group, he is absolutely essential ― and Sunday's game showed exactly why.
While the scoreline may suggest it was an easy win, Sevilla did make life hard for the home side and had Keylor Navas not been in such inspired form, the result may well have been different.
"We are prepared", Zidane said Tuesday.
Valencia picked up another win, beating Espanyol 1-0, thanks to a single goal from José Luis Gayà which consigned the hosts to a third straight defeat.
