Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says his side didn’t make use of their “best weapon” after their rollercoaster 3-2 La Liga win at home to Malaga on Saturday afternoon.After a Karim Benzema opener from two yards after Cristiano Ronaldo headed off the crossbar, Malaga’s Diego Rolan equalise after a mistake from Toni Kroos, Casemiro almost immediately restore the lead with a bullet header from Kroos’ corner, before Malaga had a second equaliser controversially disallowed by referee Jesus Gil Manzano.Malaga made it 2-2 through Chory Castro early in the second half with some help from Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, before Ronaldo won it with a quarter-hour remaining when he smacked in the rebound after his penalty was saved by Malaga keeper Roberto.With his team having succeeded in cutting the gap to leaders Barcelona to seven points ahead of the Blaugrana outfit’s game at second placed Valencia on Sunday evening, the Los Blancos coach told the postgame news conference that the performance had not been great but the result was all important.“We started well and got the first goal but they equalised,” Zidane said. “We did not use our best weapon — possession of the ball. There were a lot of losses of possession, the second half was also a bit difficult.“We can say we are happy with the result, at 2-2 with time running out we got the third goal. Today there were some good things, but others not as we wanted. For us today three points, and to see what happens in the game tomorrow.”
