Real Madrid head coach, Zinedine Zidane, said his side did what they “could do on the pitch” after Los Blancos were held to a goalless draw by Osasuna on Saturday.


Real Madrid are now one point behind Atletico Madrid after their home game scheduled for Saturday against Athletic Bilbao was postponed due to a blizzard that has shut down the capital and made transit almost impossible through much of central Spain.


Atletico have three more games in hand than their top title rivals.

Osasuna used heat lamps to melt snow and ice off the turf and deployed a platoon of workers to shovel the field before the match.

But Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said the match should have been postponed given the travel difficulties.Madrid’s plane was delayed for several hours at the capital’s airport on Friday before taking off.

The airport closed down shortly after and will remain shut until Sunday at least.
