Real Madrid play 3-3 against Las Palmas

They now trail Barcelona by one point, although they have a game in hand on the champions.

But the drama was not over, with Cristiano Ronaldo netting twice in the space of three minutes late on to rescue a valuable point for the capital club.

"It's what we've been doing for a long time, not just with me".

Quique Setien's side have 28 points and are now comfortable in 12th place, but could find themselves dragged into a relegation battle unless they can start picking up some results soon.

A disappointed Zidane looks on.

Real Madrid have scored in their last 44 games in all competitions, equalling the best run of a Liga side ever (Barcelona in 1944).

Lots of points, lots of dunks, not a lot of All-Star defense
While the two talked trash at times during their regular-season matchups, they often refused to answer questions about the other. Perhaps rightfully so, as their rookie center Joel Embiid was snubbed from the All-Star game with Paul Millsap taking his place.

Luis Figo says he is shocked by how quickly former Real Madrid Madrid teammate Zinedine Zidane has taken to management. Today we've let some crucial points slip, but we mustn't go insane about it. "There are things we have done well this year, but we have to analyse it and we will change things", added the Frenchman.

"But at the same time we can not go insane". It will be hard right until the end, as I've said before and I stand by that. You always need more time to recover, but it is what it is and we have to accept it. We will not give up the fight, this is a marathon, not a sprint and we will get through this.

"We have to think about the positives".

However, surprise rival interest could emerge from Barcelona, report Goal, who are aware that Real Madrid would refuse a sale- but will sneakily look to persuade Isco to snub fresh terms with Los Blancos and move to Catalonia in 2018 for free. The former Spain global defender, who lives in Dubai, spent five years at Madrid with Zidane and is regularly in touch with the club now.

"We have a few complicated matches but until the beginning of January we had not lost a game", he said.

Anytime a powerhouse club like Real Madrid plays, there's a certain vocal segment of fans that accuse the referee of helping the star-studded team win. After a confident victory in the end of January on the "Valencia" 3: 1, "yellow" cannot win the last four games in a row after scoring during this period only one goal.
