for La Liga's competitions at Estadio de Mestalla on Sunday, the match ended with 4-1 defeat of Real Madrid against Valencia. The only goal of Real Madrid has been scored by

Benzema

, Carlos Soler converted three consecutive penalties for Valencia and their other goal was own goal which was scored by Raphael Varane.

Thibaut Courtois

the goalkeeper of Real Madrid expressed his concern in regards to the three goals which were conceded by their rival. “It is frustrating but the decisions are made and we cannot change that.” He added that their coach

Zidane

has been treated in an unpleasant manner by the referee and VAR officials.

In the interview with El Chiringuito TV Courtois stated that “I was close to saving each of the penalties and the second goal (Raphael Varane’s own goal) was just bad luck.”

In this difficult situation it is expected that Zidane's focus will be on changing the weak form of their Champion League having obtained just four points after their first three games in their group.
