Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says everyone in the team was annoyed at dropping another two points in Saturday's 2-2 La Liga draw at Levante, however now is not the time to single out any individuals.

Recently, Zidane admitted that his future at the Santiago Bernabeu will rest on the double leg tie with the Ligue 1 leaders but the boss now insists that his only focus right now is on the upcoming La Liga clash with Levante.

Tonight however, Real Madrid were forced to chase the game late on, with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale on the bench.

Marco Asensio replaced Ronaldo with eight minutes remaining after Zidane wanted "a little more strength in the middle".

"We have scored 11 goals in our last two games, and we must continue along this line".

Zinedine Zidane's charges now sit 19 points behind bitter rivals and LaLiga leaders FC Barcelona, while they were also dumped out of the Copa del Rey.

"No. It was planned to change him, and that's all", Zidane told beIN SPORTS after the match.

He saw his shadow: Punxsutawney Phil predicts 6 more weeks of winter
In reality, Phil's prediction is decided ahead of time by the group on Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill just outside of Punxsutawney. Would winter last six more weeks, or would there be a reprieve? Ten years of Phil's predictions are missing from the record .

'This year for us is a complicated year because we haven't put six good results together in a row. Morales picked out substitute Roger Marti at the far post with five minutes to go and inexplicably the striker somehow glanced a header wide from under the goalposts when it looked easier to score. "After the second goal all we had to do was keep possession and we weren't sharp defensively".

Cristiano Ronaldo went close to doubling the lead after attractive play between Marcelo and Gareth Bale, but his chip just cleared the crossbar.

Sergio Ramos headed the visitors into an 11th-minute lead with his 50th La Liga goal for the club, but Levante equalised before half-time through Emmanuel Boateng.

Ramos, who returned to yesterdays match after recover from a calf injury, marked the record alongside his 50th goal for Los Blancos - an incredible achievement for a defender.

Zidane stressed that he did not want his players to think about any of their difficulties during the season, adding: "We must think positively".

Now Real Madrid have gone from champions to chokers as they are now the ones dropping points late in the game.
