Post Match

It was our worst game of the season, We lacked everything; energy, play, possession, intensity. It’s a bad day and it can happen. I’m the one responsible.

Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid Manager

The result is fair enough, We have to be critical of ourselves. It’s bad luck. We didn’t go crazy about the win over Barcelona, we don’t get too down about this either. There’s still a long way to go.

Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid

In order to win LaLiga, we have to play well in every game, and we didn’t play well today, If the opponent is the better team, which [Betis] were, we have to congratulate them and keep working because we weren’t at the level we were at in our last game. We didn’t play like we did against Barcelona. [This defeat] could cost us LaLiga, but we have to think game by game.”

Casemiro, Real Madrid
