Real Madrid are the most successful team as far as the Champions League is concerned but their impressive record did not help them in their group opener against Shakhtar Donetsk as they were stunned 3-2 by the Ukrainians. 

After suffering a defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said that he has to ‘find the solution’ as his side does not deserve such results.


Real Madrid lost 3-2 to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League here on Wednesday. Real Madrid conceded all three goals in the first half as Shakhtar Donetsk took a 3-0 lead.

“It’s not a good feeling, obviously. It started to come together in the end. We made a mistake for the first goal, but it’s true that we lacked confidence and we didn’t play well,” Zidane told the club’s official website

“Fortunately, and I’m happy for my players, who reacted well in the second half and changed something because they don’t deserve results like this. It was a bad game, a bad night. I’m the coach, I have to find the solution and I didn’t get it tonight. It’s difficult for the players,” he added.


Despite the shaky start, Zidane while admitting football can be difficult sometimes is very positive his team will bounce back from the setback. “I feel for the players because they have helped me win a lot of things. It was a bad game and they don’t deserve it. But that’s football. You have to keep going and think that if today is grey, tomorrow will be sunny. That’s what it’s about. Football can be difficult sometimes. I remain positive and believe in this squad and in what we are going to do: move on from this,” he said.
