Cape Town - Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane admits the Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday will provide his players with a tough challenge.

Los Merengues have never beaten the BVB at the Westfalenstadion and played out an exciting 2-2 draw at the stadium in the group stage of the Champions League last season.

Zidane is eager to claim a first victory for Madrid at Dortmund and hoping to play some enterprising football in the process.

“All the stadiums at this level are difficult to play in,” Zidane told his pre-match press conference.

“But yes it’s true that we have never won here and it’s a massive challenge for us but our aim, as it always is, is to win the match.

“We want to breathe Champions League football, to breathe and play football, so hopefully we can all see an entertaining match.”
