The German midfielder insisted that he and his teammates were able to turn the tide after beating Barcelona 3-1 at Camp Nou in last Saturday’s Clasico.

Real Madrid have not played at their level against Cadiz

Toni Kroos has pointed out that the reason Real Madrid lost to Cadiz in LaLiga is that none of the Los Blancos players put in performance according to their level. The German midfielder insisted that he and his teammates were able to turn the tide after beating Barcelona 3-1 at Camp Nou in last Saturday’s Clásico. “Nobody played at their level against Cadiz,” Kroos told the press conference before the match against Borussia Monchengladbach. “I’m the first to admit that. If you play like us, you will lose to the fourth division team. “Against Shakhtar Donetsk, we lacked confidence after their first goal, but sometimes we do. But we never give up, as it was seen on Saturday, we try to change our situation, but everything is fine because we won an important match.”

In the Champions League, there are no small teams

“Tomorrow is a final, and we have to play better than Saturday to beat B. Monchengladbach.” Real Madrid registered two consecutive defeats at the hands of Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk, but Kroos made it clear that the reason for their losses was not a lack of motivation in the dressing room. “The defeats aren’t a motivational question,” added Kroos. “We talked after both and cleared the air and we know that Clásico is always special. But in LaLiga you tend to win against the smaller teams. We played well against Barcelona many times and lost points against smaller teams. Last season we showed that there was no lack of motivation. It happened against Cadiz, but not against Shakhtar because in the Champions League there are no small teams. With this defeat, we already have a lot of pressure on us Tomorrow.”

Zinedine Zidane was at the receiving end of the criticism for the defeats as mentioned above, but Kroos stressed that the players always stood by their coach. “Players never doubt Zidane,” said Kroos. “We win and lose together, and it doesn’t look like we’re not with him when we lose. It’s an easy way out if something goes wrong. It’s not like that, and we saw it on Saturday against Barcelona.”
