Bordalás speaks of angry players after Real Madrid defeat

Jose Bordalás has said his players were left feeling angry after losing 2-1 to Real Madrid on Saturday afternoon.

Zinedine Zidane’s side were without the injured Gareth Bale, but they had Karim Benzema back and he fired them in the lead just before the break.

The home side always looked threatening though and they replied in the second half through veteran striker Jorge Molina, who slid the ball past stand-in keeper Kiko Casilla.

Ronaldo would then take charge as his effort from two yards was saved well, before Isco provided the assist for the Portuguese international to score his league goal of the season and secure all three points for the visitors.

Bordalas spoke to reporters after the game and said that his players were left angry after conceding another late goal.

“We are very angry because there are four games that we have conceded late, we are not doing something right, it can happen once or twice but not four times. There are many games like this but we have to correct it. I made a mistake replacing Bruno and I must learn how to handle games like this.”

The victory was Real’s four success win in all competitions and they gained two points on league leaders Barcelona, who were held to a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday evening.

The result seemingly ends Madrid’s poor run of form and stuttering start to the season, seeing them leapfrog both Sevilla and Valencia in the La Liga standings.

Real’s next match is on Tuesday when they entertain Tottenham in the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu, whilst Getafe must pick themselves up and prepare for Levante next week.
