The Real Madrid coach met with the press after the clash. As you may know, Real Madrid lost two very important points against Real Betis.
Zinedine Zidane was disappointed by the result
French coach said that Real Madrid lacked a winning mentality against Betis. Keep in mind that the team could not score a goal and it was a very unsatisfying moment for the coach. Zidane said that Real Madrid was in need of Kroos and Mendy. He noted that Kroos could control the pace and give a very long ball to the teammates and hosts lacked this moment from Toni Kroos. At the same time, Zidane said that both players have to be fit for the clash against Chelsea. As you may know, Real Madrid will clash against Chelsea from next week. There will be a two-leg tie against English-side in just 10 days.
Real Madrid could not convert moments
Zinedine Zidane started with a very interesting line-up. Mendy was absent from the defensive line and it was very bad for the team in general. Nacho replaced Mendy and it’s obvious that he was not as active as Ferland. At the same time, Dani Carvajal just started the game for the first time after a big injury. He needs more time to get used to the system. Rodrygo and Asensio were doing everything from the wings but they could not create big chances for the team. In the second half, Real Madrid attacked with Eden Hazard and Vinicius Junior. Both players did really well but the overall result was not satisfying for the team. Real Madrid lost two very important points and it’s obvious that there could be a big chance missed for the championship. Everyone was waiting for a late goal from Los Blancos but team players could not do anything.
