ZIDANE’S MADRID COME UP SHORT AGAIN

Champions League

Real Madrid are in danger of being knocked out of the Champions League after a 2-0 loss at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Madrid, who have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions, are third in Group B and level on points with Shakhtar. Despite a 3-2 home defeat, Borussia Monchengladbach are on top a point ahead of Madrid and Shakhtar with Inter now two behind the pair with a single game in Group B to go.

“It’s all messed up, this season we’re struggling to score goals,” said Toni Kroos after the game. 

“It’s not a physical issue. I’m fine but when you lose it’s all negative. We have to keep working and try to win the last game.

“If you are on a winning run you’ve obviously got more confidence than if you’re losing – that’s normal. As a team you feel better when you win, but we have to win again; continue working. 

“It’s tough to leave here with a 2-0 scoreline – at Inter we scored early and here it was nearly the same. Maybe we weren’t quite as good but we did produce a good first half.

“Once you’re 1-0 down everything costs you a bit more – then at 2-0 maybe we failed to believe totally that we could overturn it. We tried until the end though.”
