Luka Modric Insists Real Madrid Are Not In Crisis Despite Loss

Luka Modric has denied Real Madrid being in crisis after their shock 1-0 loss to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

Madrid went down to a second-minute goal from Nikola Vlasic on Tuesday as the holders fell to a second defeat in three games.

Pressure is mounting on head coach Julen Lopetegui but Modric is insistent Madrid will arrest their slump.

“It’s not a crisis but we haven’t been performing the way we should,” said Modric, who started on the bench.

“No doubt, we’ll get back to winning ways.

“As for tonight, CSKA showed they are very well organised and have really good players.

“They used their chance, we didn’t use ours.”

Madrid will now travel to Deportivo Alaves on Saturday as they seek to return to winning ways.
