La Liga week 13

Real Madrid lost 3-0 against Eibar, a good Spanish team with no superstar. Eibar dominated Real Madrid from start to finish defeating the Champions League title holders. This is a consternating fifth loss in just thirteen games for the Spanish giant. 

As the recently appointed coach, Solari, said “Recent games have given us reason to be optimistic and positive” and this is a definite to the current form. He went on developing:

Many things happened. First and foremost, they had a great game and we didn’t at all. We had chances to score but failed to do so. Then they scored in a transition from a corner and we must fix that element of our game, but the second goal really hurt us.

Éibar played with real heart and that was clear for all to see. They played extremely well and we couldn’t match them. There were details that tipped it in their favor which I don’t want to get into because that’s for us to discuss. We have to congratulate them on a quality, complete performance.

I don’t think it was a problem with attitude. The players worked hard and gave it all they had. Not one of them has given it anything less than 100%. We lost little battles which end up taking their toll. It’s a very tough place to come and we weren’t able to get the better of them.”
