Zidane: We have to stay calm September 21, 2017, 8:10 Zinedine Zidane has called for calm and patience following Real Madrid's shock 1-0 home defeat to Real Betis.

Zinedine Zidane has called for calm and patience following Real Madrid's shock 1-0 home defeat to Real Betis.Antonio Sanabria netted the only goal at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu with 94 minutes on the clock.It was a bitter pill for Real to swallow, having created numerous goalscoring chances throughout the tie.After the match, Zidane told the club's official website: "The way we see it, is that the ball just didn't want to go in today. We had 26 or 27 attempts and in the end, it hasn't gone in. That's football. "It wasn't a great performance but it wasn't too bad either. If you get a goal, it's a different game. Last year we won games that perhaps we didn't deserve to win, now it's gone the other way. We have to stay calm. That's three games at home and we've taken two points from nine”.Marcelo was withdrawn from the tie on 72 minutes after seemingly pulling up with an injured hamstring.Zidane added: "It's tough to lose Marcelo and concede the goal. Perhaps we didn't deserve to win the game, but we definitely didn't deserve to lose it. I know that a lot of people don't like to hear that when things are going badly, but we've got to accept it, remain calm and focus on the next game."La Liga is a long competition and we're going to make sure there is a sense of calm in the group because we'll recover from this and I'm sure we'll have better days”. The result leaves the European champions seven points adrift of leaders Barcelona, having not won at home this season.
