Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has said their 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund is hard to accept.
The Champions League holders looked destined to claim all three points at the Signal Iduna Park, but conceded a late equalizer to their host.
“The players played a great match. The result is a difficult one to accept because we deserved a bit more,” Zidane told reporters.
“When you concede three minutes from the end it hurts, especially given the effort the players put in. But it is not a bad result.
“I think in the first half we suffered a bit because they pressed a lot and we knew it is a difficult place to come against a good team, but I am very proud of the game we played. It was complete in every sense but the shame is it is three games in a row now we have drawn.”
Defender Raphael Varane however feels the result was a good reflection of the game.
“I think a draw is a fair result for both sides,” he said.
“They had possession and we hurt them on the counter. We lacked a bit of focus and energy at the end, but it’s not a bad result.
“To lose two points at the end of the game never makes you happy, but we’re alright. We’ll carry on working and we will keep on giving the best of ourselves.
“Their first goal was a bit of bad luck because the ball hit me in the face. That’s football, these things happen and it’s not a mistake from Keylor Navas. It doesn’t matter, and you carry on playing.” RECEIVE NEWS UPDATE ON: WHATSAPP +234 701 056 0394, AND TWITTER: @247NGNEWSUPDATE, EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE Share your story with us: email@example.com PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
