Coach Zinedine Zidane regrets when Real lost to Man City 1-2 at the Bernabeu in the first round of the 1/8 Champions League round on 26/2.

"Real played well and the hardest thing to do was concede City. And the moment we needed to keep the score we even played better than before. But then the team made two mistakes and got two goals. In just 10 minutes, Real lost. Football sometimes cruel, "Zidane said after the match against City.ty le bong da

After the first half without a goal, Man City pushed the squad high, rushing to attack Real at the beginning of the second half. But when the visitors played well, the host unexpectedly opened the score. Real players rise to pressure, stealing the ball from Otamendi to attack. Vinicius eliminated two City defenders and then stretched for Isco to defeat goalkeeper Ederson.
However, Real only kept the advantage to lead the table until 78 minutes. The defender of the home team did not close, let De Bruyne hit the right wing before crossing in. Jesus gently pushed Sergio Ramos and headed for the score. Five minutes later, it was Carvajal's turn to make a mistake, fouling Sterling in the penalty area leading to a penalty. From the 11m mark, De Bruyne kicked correctly, setting the score for Man City 2-1.

"We made mistakes and we had to pay. But football is like that. Mistakes are part of the game. Real gave, but lost because of 10 minutes of distraction. But everything is not over. We are still there. The second leg. Real will go to Manchester, try to win to continue. The team still has a chance to correct, that's the beauty of football. Real will play hard in the second leg, "added Zidane. tructiepbongda

Real will play the return leg at City's Etihad Stadium on March 17. They must win with a goal difference or a goal difference, but score more than two goals if they want to go forward.
