This season for the second time, Real Madrid lost to Shakhtar (2-0).
And putting themselves in a difficult situation for the group to pass the club also lost in the fifth round of the Champions League.
“It is difficult to explain this defeat,” Luka Modric said after the match in Ukraine.
“We looked really good in the first half, we created a lot of chances, but we didn’t manage to score a goal. After they scored, everything changed. It’s hard for me to explain it all. We are in a difficult situation, but that’s the way it is. we have chances, but we score hard. If we don’t score early enough, everything becomes problematic for us. It’s like that in football, it’s not math. Not everything will go the way we imagined.”
The captain of the Croatian national team said that the Spanish champion lacks self-confidence in the moments after the goal.
“As soon as the opponent takes the lead, we lose confidence. We have to change and fix that. We also lack consistency because we play one great game and then two bad games and then one good game.”
Real must beat Borussia Monchengladbach in the last round.
“We have one more game left and we will do our best to win. We have to be positive and believe we will win that game.”
