  • Changes afoot as Real Madrid prepare for Cup debut

The Los Blancos endured a 2-1 defeat against the third-tier club on Wednesday night.

It is a failure: "Well, the truth is that we have tried".

Now he will have to hope for another positive reaction when his side visit Alaves in La Liga on Saturday, a match which suddenly looks like a "must-win" for the French great. You have to assume responsibility. Soccer is this. The goalkeeper has made two or three saves.

The semi-professional side were even reduced to 10 men in the second period of extra time when Ramon Lopez Oliva was sent off, but that didn't stop the minnows from the city of Alcoy in the region of Valencia snatching a winning goal with a penalty shootout looming. But I must take responsibility'.

They talk about ridiculous.

"It's not a shame, it can happen, it happens, these are things that happen in a football career". It's another painful day today because we don't like losing - especially for the players, they want to win. "No-one can escape this debacle", said the front cover of newspaper Marca, while daily AS described it as a "disgrace", adding Zidane's status had been affected. We will continue working. "We have to stay focussed because we can still win things". "We'll think about this and work hard".

"I believe my players have faith in me, but you'll have to ask them", he said.

Players released by DC: Keemo Paul, Sandeep Lamichhane, Alex Carey, Mohit Sharma, Tushar Deshpande, Jason Roy. Glenn Maxwell has been released by Kings XI Punjab ahead of the 2021 Indian Premier League mini auction.

He is aware that his position will come under threat if results do not improve , with the World Cup victor telling reporters when quizzed on his future: "We have done good things, not so much lately, but apart from the last games we did good things this season. We should have done things differently but we didn't manage to do so", he said. If the message arrives you have to ask the players. "I believe so and we are in the same boat here".

But Madrid head coach Zidane dismissed suggestions the defeat was shameful for the LaLiga champions.

Madrid beat Celta Vigo 2-0 to start the year but was coming off a draw against struggling Elche in its last league game of 2020.

The mood was rather different over in the Alcoyano camp as they scored the goal that would eliminate the reigning Spanish champions, who ended the match with stars such as Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos on the pitch.

"I am going to assume it, as always".

It is his most painful defeat: "All defeats are painful, this is not in particular".
