We have to keep the positive. In such a result there are not many positive things, we played a good game except the final ten or fifteen minutes. Now we have to go there and win if we want to pass. “What happened in the last ten or fifteen minutes?: “Nothing, they are mistakes and you pay the mistakes. It’s that. But mistakes are part of football and that’s it.”Loss of solvency in the Bernabéu: “Today it has not been possible. We have given everything in the field, we have lacked ten more minutes of concentration. It has been a very physical and even match and in the end we paid it.”Kroos.

I have players and I chose.”The fact of playing the lap outside may come in handy: “If we want to pass the round we have to go there and win and Madrid is able to do that. We are happy to play at home, always. The only thing is that today in ten minutes they have been complicated.”How do you expect the return ?: “We’ll see, we know what we have to do. You have to go there and win to pass. But even with a result in favor today the same thing would have happened. The tie is 180 minutes and nothing changes.”What do you think right now? “It’s a bad result, it’s two games in a row losing. It’s a bad run because when we play badly we can understand it, but today it wasn’t the case. We didn’t deserve this defeat.”How will you face the turn? Are you almost lost? “We have to play and think we can qualify. We have nothing else in mind and that is what we are going to do on the lap.”last_img read more
