The former midfield great replaced Rafa Benitez three months ago, but his star-studded team is virtually out of the Spanish league title race, 10 points adrift of Barcelona in third place.
Despite Madrid's best chances at a trophy resting in the Champions League, Zidane says his team is focused on Saturday's match at Camp Nou.
He says "maybe the game has a different role, but that won't change anything for us. We will do our best and start strong."
