“We do not despise the Shakhtar”

Modric appeared in the 'flash interview' of Movistar Champions League to give his impressions on the defeat of Madrid against Shakhtar (2-3), at Alfredo Di Stéfano, on the first day of the group stage of the Champions League.

What happened?

“In the first half we weren't up to the competition, in the second we improved, but it wasn't enough to draw or win the game. We have to improve, it's obvious. We lacked confidence in the first half. We have to continue, The next game is coming quickly, there is no time to regret it. “

The Shakhtar came out with one more march.

“We have not entered the game well and then we improved a lot, but it was not enough to reverse the situation. We have to be together, positive.”

What did Zidane say at halftime?

“That we had to push harder and better than in the first half. Nothing more. In the second half we had opportunities and we scored two goals. It's tough, but there is still a lot left.”

Huo overconfidence due to the losses of the rival?

“No, sure, we know that Shakhtar is a good team, we have not despised Shakhtar. We did not enter well, they scored the first and we lowered our heads … In the second half we raised the level. We are not happy”

How do you face the Clásico after this defeat?

“It is good that it arrives, we have to be together and trust each other, we have not forgotten to play football. El Clásico is always different and we will be at the level of the game.”
