Cristiano Ronaldo reveals how he can help save Zinedine Zidane's job

Instead, Zinedine Zidane's superstar-strugglers found themselves on the wrong end of a 2-1 defeat which saw them dumped out at the quarter-final stage via the away goals rule.

Leganes, based just south of Madrid, was playing in the last eight of the Copa for the first time in the team's 89-year history.

Real's dismal start to the season has left them fourth in La Liga, 19 points behind table-toppers Barcelona and five adrift of Saturday's opponents.

Real Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal concedes the Champions League is now their last chance of winning a trophy this season.

"If we do not get past against the PSG, my continuity is in danger".

However, when asked if his future at the club depended on the Champions League tie with the French league leaders on 14 February, the 45-year-old said: "Yes, that's clear".

Speaking in the Bernabeu mixed zone after the latest setback in a very hard 2017-18, Ramos said now was a time for everybody at the club to stick together, and recalled that too many changes in past seasons had not gone well.

"That is what I do for each game". With a squad so rich in talent, Zidane will have no excuse if Madrid fails to reach the semifinals for a second consecutive season. "It's a failure for me", said Zidane who recently penned a contract extension until 2020. "We have to keep working".

"In terms of the club's trajectory and allowing us to grow and then compete at the top level, that was the most significant moment".

They have not won at Valencia's Mestalla stadium since 2013 and Zidane says he needs to find an answer to their current woes. I am responsible for this, I'm the coach. We'll have to wake up tomorrow and turn our attentions to the next game because there's nothing else we can do. "Today is a failure for me". We're all to blame, but I'm the one who's responsible.

"I must take on this situation". I am responsible. They have to accept a degree of the responsibility because they're the ones out on the pitch.

If Real fail to produce the goods against Valencia and lose further ground in La Liga, Zidane may not even be around to face Neymar and Co in the Champions League next month.

"Cheer up team. Cheer up madridistas", Ronaldo wrote on Twitter.
