Three days after their victory against Barça in the clasico, Real Madrid struggled to regain their legs.
Worse, he almost returned KO from a complicated trip on the lawn of Borussia Mönchengladbach, after the catastrophic defeat against Shakhtar on the first day of the Champions League.
But, led 2-0 (doubled from Marcus Thuram), Zinédine Zidane's men managed to save the furniture by equalizing in stoppage time. They thus bring back a small point, the first on the clock this year.
If the situation seems critical on the accounting point after two days, Zizou seems to be satisfied with the way his team behaved on Tuesday night.
"I think our content has been very good," said the French coach.
This draw is not for me a relief, it is a deserved result.
What should be remembered is our discipline, we always believed that we could turn the game around.
We had an opponent who put us in difficulty on two or three actions, we did not panic, we continued to play, to put amplitude and depth.
We came back with character, that's what I remember.
If we continue to play like this, we will do great things and we will win games, that's for sure.
I'm very happy and proud of my team, that's the most important.
And now Inter
Next week, his players will tackle the biggest chunk of the group, at least on paper: Inter Milan.
The Italians conceded another draw against the leader of the pool, Shakhtar, before the double confrontation against the Merengue.
And in the end, it's not impossible that one of the two teams is (already) eliminated.
