- Real Madrid were beaten 3-1 from an efficient Spurs team at Wembley
- Ronaldo thinks the result wasn't a fair reflection of the game
- Two goals from Dele Ali and a goal by Eriksen ensured Spurs got a famous victory
Real Madrid were taught a footballing lesson by English outfit Tottenham Hotspurs as a master class performance from Mauricio Pochettino's men sent a loud message to whoever cares to listen that Spurs are ready to compete on the big stage.
However, Fifa Best winner, Cristiano Ronaldo who had a night to forget despite scoring Madrid's only goal, has come out to play down Spurs' victory, saying his Real Madrid team did not deserve to lose at Wembley.
“It’s a bad time for us because we’re losing and we’re used to winning,” The World best footballer told Football Espana.
“It’s a bad patch for us, but we want to change it and I’m sure we will. This is the beginning, we still have a lot of time to improve and I’m convinced that we will.
“There’s been no harm done, but bad runs aren’t good and we have to change things.
“We have to admit that we aren’t as we’d like to be. I don’t see things to be so bad, but we have to be confident.
“Criticism? When you don’t win, people try to look for things, but I’m here talking, showing my face for my teammates, and I’m confident that things will change.
“Irritated on the pitch? It’s normal. When you’re losing, things don’t go the way you want them to and you want to help your teammates.
“It was a very big blow to go 3-0 down, although for me it wasn’t a good reflection of what happened on the pitch.
“Their first goal was offside, just like the other day. Our attitude is to run and fight, like it was at Girona.”
The defeat to Spurs on Wednesday, November 1, made it back to back defeats for the European champions after losing 2-1 away to Girona in the league four days ago.
Ronaldo has struggled for form this season scoring just one goal in the league.
