Real Madrid, leaders of LaLiga Santander, conceded their first defeat in all competitions in three months, this Sunday when they fell 1-0 in Getafe; and, in statements to Movistar, Casemiro admitted that the white team has a lot of trouble with rivals who appear with a defense of five.
“It was a difficult game, very tough. You have to be fair and talk about an individual error, when it fails we all do it, but it was a mistake by a player who was being one of the best in the team, but this is football and you have to be vigilant. We have worked, we have fought, but we have to think about the Cup match “, Casemiro analyzed, regarding Militao’s play.
The Getafe goalkeeper was one of the best in the game and avoided more than one Real Madrid goal, a situation that was highlighted by Casemiro: “We had opportunities, the goalkeeper made good saves, Luka hit the crossbar. With this shirt you are never allowed to lose but if you do it should be like today, working and fighting until the end ”.
On Getafe’s approach: “We are having a bit of problems against the lines of five behind, the games that we have not won are against these defenses and we have to keep working. If the game is 1-3 nothing happens ”, said the Brazilian midfielder.
“We always have to add three at a time, the players who have entered have shown that they are committed, we have a good squad and we have to move forward thinking that the next game is important”he added.
Casemiro regretted the defeat, but highlighted the work of the merengue team: “Every game against Getafe is always like this, mentally you have to be strong because they take a long time to play, it’s their way. We have tried well and fought to the end ”.
