Real Madrid vs. Real Sociedad - Football Match Report

Real Madrid vs. Real Sociedad - Football Match Report

The defeat left Madrid, who drew 2-2 with struggling Villarreal on Thursday, fifth on 30 points after 18 games in the La Liga standings, 10 adrift of Barcelona who won 2-1 at Getafe.

The pressure is on Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari when his side entertains Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday.

Perhaps the arrival of Brahim Diaz from Manchester City will kick start the Champions League holders' season into life and out of Messi's shadow.

"We did everything to turn it around, we had a lot of chances none of them went in and in football it's the goals that count". "I've always defended the VAR system, but it has to be improved because what we've seen was scandalous".

Santiago Solari's side fell behind after just three minutes and were forced to play a man down for the final half-hour as they fell one point off fourth-placed Alaves with the result. We must take more responsibility.

Modric added: "The manager is doing a great job but he can't score the goals or stop them at the beginning of the game". "We would have liked to have got the year off to a good start, but it's not turned out that way".

"We can not have this bulls-- every game". You have to avoid it in the future. The team performed well in spells but we lacked that cutting edge and luck in front of goal and had we had it, we'd be reflecting on a different result right now. Solari has our confidence and we can not look for excuses for him, or blame him.

Luka Modric, meanwhile, sought to play down the pressure on Solari, telling AS: "VAR is not something we can think about as players, maybe it is odd we have not received a penalty but that is the way football is". There are reasons we are playing badly and we must look for them.

Vazquez was shown a second yellow card with Madrid trailing 1-0 in the second half before Vinicius went to ground after seeming to beat Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli to the ball.

"We are all human and we all make mistakes, but when you have the chance to look over the evidence again and you do not, it's hard to understand".
