Zinedine Zidane is adamant that Real Madrid "don't need to change anything" despite falling to a humbling 3-0 home defeat against Barcelona on Saturday.

Zinedine Zidane has stressed that Real Madrid "don't need to change anything" despite falling to a 3-0 home defeat against Barcelona on Saturday.

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Aleix Vidal all struck in the second half of El Clasico at the Bernabeu to edge 14 points ahead of their bitter rivals in La Liga.

The Blancos head coach, however, made it clear that the club was not "not going to go crazy", even if the result was "very tough to take".

"How we're feeling after a 3-0 defeat? Bad," Zidane told reporters after the game. "We started very well, the first half was even and it's a defeat that hurts. It's very tough for us to take, but it is what it is, it's football.

"[Dani] Carvajal red? It happens from time to time. You think about making some changes but then you lose a player. It becomes a different game and it's very difficult. Second half? We made a mistake, we defended badly, and at this level they're differences between winning and losing.

"Still, we're not going to go crazy. It's a very difficult defeat to take, but we don't need to change anything. We'll never give up. Now we'll go for our holidays and we won't think about it. We'll enjoy the time we have with our families and come back. It's not over."

Real return to action after the Christmas break with a Copa del Rey last-16 first-leg trip to Numancia on January 4.
