Eliseu: “We deserved to have made a mark on the scoreboard in the second half”

At the end of the Málaga Club de Fútbol – Real Madrid Club de Fútbol match, Blue and Whites players, Santo Cazorla and Eliseu spoke to the media in La Rosaleda’s press room.


“We tried to be more aggressive and not make it so easy, but they got close a few times and scored four goals.  They played with ease, and it was difficult to get the ball back, and with two, three goals’ difference it’s difficult to play against a team which has some of the best players in the world.”

“Whoever didn’t see the match will be thinking that they walked all over us, but it wasn’t like that, Madrid were lucky with set-pieces.  We must continue working and think about Wednesday’s game.”

“We made a few mistakes and Madrid scored at almost every opportunity they had.”

“We congratulate them for the match, specially the first half, even though it was tough.  In the second half, we deserved to have made a mark on the scoreboard, but it wasn’t to be.”

“You can’t be satisfied when you lose a match like this, but we have played well in the second half and we’ll settle with that.”
