Real Madrid’s disappointing pre-season continued on Tuesday as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Tottenham at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Zinedine Zidane’s men were looking to bounce back after their humiliating defeat of 7-3 against Atletico but again failed miserably to impress against last season’s Champions League finalists.
“Our defeat was well-deserved. It is true that we are not quite in good shape”, midfielder, Tony Kroos told after the match.
Real Madrid has lost three of the four pre-season matches with their only consolation win was against Arsenal on penalties, despite having spending hugely on new players this summer.
One of the most expensive players was Eden Hazard was particularly disappointed with his performance whose loose pass led Harry Kane giving Spurs the lead midway through the first half. “We started off very badly, the opponent took advantage of our mistakes”, said Kroos after the defeat.
Zidane’s men have conceded 13 goals so far and both teams will be in action on Thursday.
