Real Madrid welcome Liverpool to the Santiago Bernabeu for their Champions League last-eight stage clash on Tuesday, April 6.
Both sides will be meeting for the first time since their last face-off at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv three years ago.
The Spanish League giants ended up winning the battle and also won the title - their 13th in the history of the championship.
However, Zinedine Zidane believes his Los Blancos squad has been unfairly criticised so far this campaign owing to their struggles in all competitions.
Real saw off Eibar 2-0 over the weekend to close the gap on table-toppers Atletico Madrid who have 66 points after 29 games, yet, they are not given enough credit for what they have done so far.
Zidane insisted that his players are being undervalued according to a report credited to Daily Mail:
"I believe so. In the end, we deserve trust. What is said, we can't change all of that. What we can do is our jobs every day.
"But through history, this team turns around the things that have been said. We never give up on things, never. While there is a chance we always fight.
"We have had difficult moments, now we are in a good moment, though it doesn't mean anything at the moment. We have to keep on fighting and compete."
Zidane won three Champions League titles during his first stint in charge of the Madrid club and has already reached the quarterfinals of this season's edition.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Sergio Ramos will miss both of Real Madrid’s Champions League quarter-final clashes against Liverpool after picking up a calf injury while on international duty with Spain.
The Galacticos confirmed the development in a statement saying that the legendary defender suffered a muscle injury in his left leg while on international duty with Spain last month.
