Football manager, Zinedine Zidane has predicted a difficult season for Real Madrid after his players almost suffered an embarrassing Champions League defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday night October 27, until Casemiro’s 93rd-minute goal helped Real Madrid secure a 2-2 with the German side.
If Real Madrid had lost last night it would have been a record fourth consecutive European loss for Madrid.
Even with the comeback, football fans could still see defensive mistakes in Real Madrid but coach Zidane had defended his players, saying a expects a hard season.
“We didn’t think this would be such a drama,” Zidane told reporters.
“But my team showed that they know how to react.
“I thought we were very good in the first half. The big pain is that we committed a serious error in how we conceded their first goal.
The result leaves Madrid with one win, one draw, and two defeats from their last four games in all competitions.
If Madrid lose their next game against Huesca and Inter Milan his position as coach could come under threat.
“We didn’t transform the possession we enjoyed into proper chances,” said Zidane.
“What I’ll take from this experience is how these players reacted. This was a very important point to secure.
“This is going to be a difficult year for everyone, but I’m proud of my team tonight. Playing like this we’ll go through the group to the next round without any doubt.”
