Zinedine Zidane admits Cristiano Ronaldo is important to Real Madrid but says other players must step up in his absence.

And Zidane was asked whether he thought Ronaldo's absence would be felt so keenly.

"He's important, what he's done and who he is," the France great added.

"But when there is no Cristiano we have a template to do it right. It is important to know that we have other players.

"Tomorrow we will not have many who normally play and I trust in my players."
