‘It’s all messed up for Real Madrid’, says Kroos after Shakhtar loss

Wed 02 December 2020 | 9:11

After the results on Tuesday, Real Madrid is facing serious danger regarding the Champions League but Toni Kroos is not going to call it a day.

The

Real Madrid

midfielder believes the Spanish giants are ‘all messed up’ after the Tuesday match against Shakhtar which was a 2-0 loss for Madrid.

This dramatic loss in Ukraine puts Real Madrid at risk of being knocked out of the

Champions League

. The Spanish giants have only had one victory in five games and are sitting third on the table.

Kroos

believes what his squad lacks this season is mainly mentality which left them struggling.

"

It's all messed up, this season we're struggling to score goals,

" he said after the game. 

"

It's not a physical issue. I'm fine but when you lose it's all negative. We have to keep working and try to win the last game

.

"

If you are on a winning run you've obviously got more confidence than if you're losing - that's normal. As a team you feel better when you win, but we have to win again; continue working. 

"It's tough to leave here with a 2-0 scoreline - at Inter we scored early and here it was nearly the same. Maybe we weren't quite as good but we did produce a good first half.

"Once you're 1-0 down everything costs you a bit more - then at 2-0 maybe we failed to believe totally that we could overturn it. We tried until the end though."

The Croatian international Luka Modric is not planning to surrender despite his squad’s recent failure.

"

There's still a game to go, we'll see what happens in Inter's match and see what we have to do in the last game,

" said Modric. 

"

Madrid have shown that when we need to win, we can do it, but we have to show it on the pitch because words aren't enough

.

"

We lacked the consistency we've always had. We have a great game, two bad ones, a good one, two bad ones. We lack that consistency and we have to improve as soon as

<em>

possible. 

"When the opponent goes ahead we're not good, we lose confidence, and we don't play as we did before they scored. We have to change that, look for solutions to improve

."
