Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 03/10/2018

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has refuted the claims that there is crisis in Real Madrid following their poor show in recent outings and has failed to score a goal in their past games.

Real Madrid has suffered a third defeat this season and a third game in a row without a goal. It is now the first time since 2006/07 season that Real Madrid plays three games without the opponents picking the ball out of their own net.

Lopetegui is urging people to remain calm."Ten days ago we beat Roma and weren't so invincible," he said at his post-match press conference."Now, we are not so bad."There are some situations in football that we have to reverse."

The coach is confident that the goals will return if the side keeps creating chances as they have been."We must keep trying to score," he said."Keep generating chances and we will be more successful, I have no doubt that the team will score and the victories will come."Today was not easy, but we have to think about Alaves."When asked what he felt his side were missing, Lopetegui said he thinks they're simply lacking goals.

"We have failed to score the countless chances we have had," he said."We have lacked fortune, we have tried and from distance, in the centre, through crossing balls."From that point of view, we have had bad luck."It's now time for Los Blancos to refocus on the league, as they face a tricky trip to Alaves this Saturday.
