No Crisis In Real Madrid Zidane Insists
Real Madrid Coach has refuted insinuations that his team is in crisis following a string of poor results.
Dele Alli scored twice and Christian Eriksen added a third before Cristiano Ronaldo netted a consolation.
The defeat came just three days after a shock 2-1 loss to Girona left the LaLiga champions eight points behind Barcelona.
It was also their worst group-stage loss since a 2-0 defeat to Juventus in November 2008 and their first at this stage of the competition since a 2-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in 2012.
Madrid's form has left Zidane facing questions about his capabilities since taking charge in January 2016, but he is adamant there is no reason to panic.
"We're not in crisis," he told a news conference. "I'm not worried and I won't be for the rest of the year, whatever happens.
"Losing two games in a row can't be good for us but we have three or four days to rest and then football continues. The analysis I can give today (Wednesday) is that we lost to the better team.”
Many await to see how Real Madrid will fare in their next outing which is a La Liga home game against Las Palmas.
