Real Madrid didn’t… excite anyone with the football they played against Alaves, but they did win 2-1, which was the main target after falling to that shock 1-0 home defeat to Real Betis a week earlier, having dropped more points in LaLiga before that.
There has to be patience. It’s not a brilliant time for us, but we have to accept it. I’m certain that we’ll have a better performance next time
Zinedine Zidane told reporters after the match, which his team won thanks to two goals by Dani Ceballos, in his first LaLiga start for Real Madrid.
We know that it’s difficult wherever we go, Alaves needed the points. They had a good game. I’m satisfied and so can everyone be because we got what we wanted, the three points
the French coach said, insisting that despite the slump early in the season, Real Madrid fans have no reason to worry, better days are soon to come.
I won’t single anything out in particular, but we got the three points and we’ll have much better days, especially in terms of our performance, but you have to congratulate the players
Zidane also said, adding
playing every three days ultimately requires a big effort, so we can be happy. Two goals aren’t many for all the chances we had, but the important thing was to win.
