Real Madrid has encountered a number of difficult moments in recent weeks. After being knocked out of the King's Cup by Real Sociedad in the quarterfinals and losing 5 points in the last 2 league games in Spain, yesterday she suffered a home loss in the first game of the Champions League eighth game against Manchester City.
The Blancos who were ousted in the same class last year will have to rise to advance in the important continent factory after 2: 1 last night in front of Pep Guardiola and his disciples.
Zinedine Zidane, waiting for Classico against Barcelona this Sunday, said after the game: "We played very well for 75 minutes, but then we started making mistakes and they made us pay. We needed another good 10 minutes to play this game safely, but that's part of it. We are worried about this loss, but remember well that this is a 180-point battle, not 90. You can take good things out of this game and move on. I have fighters in the team, I believe in their ability to make a makeover. "

On the game against Barcelona, the French added: "The game on Sunday is going to be amazing. We will have to rest by then and hope to give a big show. I hope the fans will come in droves and give everything to help the team get through it. We give everything, but we are in bad momentum."
Real midfielder Casmiro added to his coach: "It's not lost yet. If there is a team capable of returning from such a home loss, it is Real Madrid. We had a great 75 minutes today, but we did not maintain the same intensity for the last quarter hour and retreated."
