A much-changed Real Madrid side suffered a 3-2 defeat against Sevilla on Wednesday, on a night to forget for their captain. Given that both of this season's meetings between the rival sides ended equal, Madrid's superior goal difference would see them climb the rankings to a spot above Atletico. "All the players I have are worthy and we came here to win".
Although Madrid were afforded plenty of the ball, they were not very effective and found themselves trailing 26 minutes in - Wissam Ben Yedder scoring his first LaLiga goal since February with aplomb. We had some control over the game and the team did not play badly. "We have a lot of games and have to rest, there's a final and we have to rest, I'm the coach and I decide". Real Madrid pushed forward to get a goal but they have not been prolific up front for the entire night as Sevilla got the better side of the visitors who are struggling to stamp a commanding play at the Sanchez Pizjuan. "Every time we come here something happens with him".
"We were good in most areas, but we did nothing in the last 30 metres, nothing on the second line, nothing to worry the opponent", he said.
"When you lose, you can not be happy, but it will not affect what we do until the end of the season". He was not ideal with the [missed] penalty, but that can happen.
