Ernesto Valverde's men could have won the Spanish top-flight by the time Real travel to the Nou Camp on May 6, and Zidane made it clear his men will not pay their respects.

Zidane also faces a tricky decision over whether to rest players for the second leg of Madrid's Champions League quarter-final against Juventus on Wednesday evening.

Barcelona lead La Liga by nine points with eight matches left and entertain Real in the penultimate round of the season.

Barca's head of institutional relations Guillermo Amor said in December that his club had declined to repeat the guard of honour for Real as they had not participated in the Club World Cup.

"We will not give a guard of honour, this is my decision", said Zidane on such a possibility. There are many games and regardless of how we finish the season Bale is a Madrid player and he's going to stay.


Tradition has dictated that La Liga's fiercest rivals will acknowledge the achievements of one another once top honours are secured.

Gareth Bale was unhappy after being left on the bench at Juventus in midweek, according to Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane. We have to do our work well and play a complete game, he said ahead of the game. "My brother plays for them and it's even more magical than a normal derby, it's incredible. I still think he's an important player".

"We are in the full focus of tomorrow's game, the team is going through a good period, and we want to continue on this", Zidane added.

There have only been three previous occasions in which a guard of honour has been presented in meetings between Real Madrid and Barcelona.

We do have recognition towards Madrid, for what they have achieved this year.
