Real Madrid have a step towards the round of 16 after beating Inter Milan at the San Siro yesterday. Eden Hazard’s spot-kick and Rodrygo’s goal was enough for Zidane’s side to claim the much-needed victory.
After the game, Zidane said he was not such if it was the team’s complete performance on the night. The coach appears to be in doubt of his team’s abilities at the moment.
At least, the Frenchman man is still reflecting on the recent poor results against Valencia and Villarreal in the league.
“I don’t know if it was our most complete performance but they are 3 crucial points for us. Yesterday you asked me about our ability to win without Sergio and we’ve changed that today. That’s fantastic for everyone. Sergio will be thrilled for the team, and Karim too. It’s everyone’s hard work. We put on a good display, full of spirit and heart. They’re 3 crucial points for us and this is the path to follow” says Zidane according to Realmadrid.com.
A crucial win on the road ensured another step towards the knockout stages of the competition despite a slow start.
In the other game of the group, Borussia Monchengladbach defeated Shakhtar Donetsk to further increase the gap at the top.
