Barcelona and Madrid meet Sunday in the final "clasico" of the season with very little to play for in the Spanish league, so all the talk was about whether Madrid should give the Catalan club a guard of honor for winning the league title last weekend.
That goodbye is important for Zidane and Real Madrid, as the dynamic of Barca's three-man midfield is one issue the French manager has seemed most concerned about in recent years.
With Barcelona having won the title last week and Real Madrid fresh from qualifying for their third successive Champions League final, you could be forgiven for thinking that the latest instalment of El Clasico has rather less at stake than past encounters.
Madrid go into the game 15 points adrift of Barca and four points behind second-placed Atletico Madrid, with a game in hand over their local rivals.
All said and done, there is still plenty to look forward to into the El Clasico which will see Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo face off possibly for last time before the 2018 World Cup starts in Russian Federation.
"We respect what Barca have done in winning the league, which for me is the most hard and nicest thing you can do".
Barca will be keen to further cement their domestic hegemony over Madrid and extend their gap over them to 18 points, which would be the biggest gap they have ever held over their rivals.
Terre Haute police officer fatally shot
Terre Haute authorities said there will be an investigation into the shooting of the officer and the homicide suspect. An Indiana State Police spokesman says the suspect in the fatal shooting of a police officer Friday night has died.
Zidane downplayed the guard of honor tradition, noting that Barcelona didn't do it for Madrid when it played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after his club won the Club World Cup in December.
There's also plenty for Real Madrid to still learn about themselves ahead of the Champions League final, and Barcelona would love to send them into that game with even more question marks hanging over their inconsistency this season.
"Some say it is as they were not in the competition, but that is not true".
"I am not the one who decides if there is a pasillo", Zidane said.
"I started to understand football in another way watching Iniesta play with Barcelona". Their statistics this season is impressive and all the other teams in the league had just bowed down to their brilliance and determination to win and do it in style.
Malaga, Las Palmas and Deportivo La Coruna have already been relegated. Though five points clear of Getafe in seventh, there are four teams who could still mathematically finish above them, with Villarreal still to face tough assignments against Barcelona and Real Madrid.
However, these roles again changed and Zidane adopted a pragmatic philosophy which brought him both Champions League trophy and La Liga last season.
