In five rounds of the Champions League, Real Madrid conceded nine goals, which is the worst defensive score in this competition ever, it seems that Zinedine Zidane’s chair is rocking like never before.
However, he will not “fall” from it after the second defeat of Shakhtar this year, as the French coach stated after the match.
The second defeat was suffered by Madrid in the Champions League, again by the Ukrainian team, which celebrated with 2: 0.Shortly before Shakhtar, Alaves inflicted another painful defeat this season in the Primera.
– A lot has accumulated, but tonight we pressed, we took a lot of balls, we created chances. This defeat is not the fault of the players nor does it show what happened on the field. We must continue to believe in what we are doing despite all the blows. This is a difficult moment for the club, but we must endure it proudly and with dignity. Too bad we didn’t deserve defeat. Today, victory was not possible, but in the last game in the group, we have to win, we believe in that and we will fight to the end.
The last match will also be decisive for Real Madrid, which could suffer a heavy blow if it does not advance to the next phase of the elite continental competition.
– I changed players when I thought it was time for a change. The team is physically in good condition, we fight, we look good in attack and defense, we create chances. We were destroyed by the first goal, we were just at the moment to score a goal, and we conceded it. We are thinking about how we will win in the last round. Defeats are sometimes deserved, but that was not the case tonight. We need to learn from this and raise our heads.
