MADRID, AP:

Now is not the time for Real Madrid to get careless.

Zinedine Zidane, the former Madrid great looking to win his first Spanish league title as the team's coach, said Saturday's game against already relegated Granada should not be taken lightly.

"It will be even more difficult because Granada doesn't have anything to play for but they are still playing against Real Madrid and they still have quality players.

"You can say that their season wasn't good because they were relegated, but it's a team that showed that it deserved to stay in the first division. We have to prepare well and try to do our best."

Madrid is level on points with Barcelona but trails on the head-to-head tiebreaker. Madrid, however, has four games to play while Barcelona has three, including today's match against fifth-place Villarreal at the Camp Nou.

"We have to put in our minds that this is a very important game for us," Zidane said. "If we think that it's going to be easy, we will be making a mistake. There are few games left and we know that these three points are important for us."
