Real Madrid can win the treble this season according to Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

Madrid's assistant coach has insisted that securing the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles is a distinct possibility.

"Of course you should discuss the possibility of winning the treble," he told Spanish newspaper El Confidencial.

"When you play at Real Madrid you know what the objectives are. We are in three competitions and we are there."

Madrid sit top of the La Liga standings just ahead of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. They will face Barcelona next in the Copa del Rey and will surely progress in the Champions League after beating Schalke 6-1 in the first leg of the last 16 away from home.

"We must go on, knowing that it is very difficult because there are very good teams. If you remain focused and working well, we can achieve important things."

Madrid have been in scintillating form recently with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale scoring seemingly at will. Real have never before secured the treble and if they were to do it this season they would need to be firing on all cylinders.

"It's an awful lot of games. You know what's the secret? The players. We also have a very good coach who leads the group."

Real Madrid's next match sees them face Levante at home on Sunday in La Liga.
