Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos commented after a 2: 1 defeat to Real Betis:
“There were moments when Real were active and created moments, but it is not enough for winning. We should not miss such chances, but we deserved a draw rather than a loss.
We still have 11 games to play before the end of the season, and we know that if we don’t win such games, we won’t become champions. ” – Ramos said.
Zidane: “It’s my fault. It was the worst match of the season.”
Zinedine Zidane, head coach of the royal club, also commented after the match:
“I am not happy with the game. We had a lot of mistakes. We lost the ball in situations that were followed by offensive attacks. Our team had the worst match of the season, and it was all my fault.
We need to analyze what happened and what we lacked to win. There are 11 more games ahead, and we have no right to fail.
The rival made a good match and did everything according to plan. I am responsible for the loss.” – Zidane said.
