"I don't need to prepare anything", Zidane said.

There was a lull before Real Sociedad substitute Jon Bautista got one back with a quarter hour remaining, Ronaldo completed his 43rd hat trick for the club after Sociedad goalkeeper Gero Rulli had spilled substitute Gareth Bale's 20 yarder.

However, Real have crumbled this season, crashing out of the Copa del Rey and enduring a miserable domestic campaign.

Ronaldo extended Madrid's lead with a first-time finish from Marcelo's low centre after he was unwisely left unmarked in the middle of the visitors' box and he headed home his second before half-time after Toni Kroos had picked out the top-right corner with a sublime strike.

On being questioned about the upcoming Champions League clash against Ligue 1 leaders PSG next week, Zidane was quick to point out that the focus of the club is on winning all the three points against Sociedad.

Hazard was key as the Blues cantered to Premier League glory last term in Antonio Conte's first season in charge and though Chelsea's title defence has fallen away this time around, the Belgium global has been in imperious form. "We know that Wednesday will be different, and with another motivation". "I don't split loyalties, I hope it is a great game and the best team wins", the retired maestro said.
