“We’ve lost control”: Real Madrid lost their intensity as they threw away the lead to lose from Manchester City in the Champions League, midfielder Casemiro claims
- Real Madrid was a goal ahead but eventually lost 2-1 to Manchester City
- Sergio Ramos was also sent when the hosts fell apart on Wednesday evening
- Casemiro hinted that they lost their intensity during the clash of the Champions League
Casemiro has claimed that Real Madrid “has lost control” when they fell to pieces against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Real went on for an hour in Wednesday night’s game, but Gabriel Jesus balanced the game for City before the hosts awarded a penalty that Kevin De Bruyne converted.
To end the 2-1 defeat, captain Sergio Ramos was sent because he had brought in Jesus towards the end of the game.

It means that Real will be without their captain for the second stage at the Etihad Stadium and needs two goals to advance to the quarterfinals.
The Brazilian midfielder Casemiro is still optimistic, but believes that City will offer a serious challenge, just like with the Santiago Bernabeu.
“The explanation is clear,” he told television station Movistar.
“We did very well for 75 minutes and then we had no intensity at all, we lost control of the game, we leaned back and they are a great rival, they attacked twice and scored.

“There is no excuse. At the weekend we have a tough game against Barcelona. We need to think about that. “
When asked about the second stage, Casemiro continued: ‘If there is one team that can turn this around, it is Real Madrid.
“But I think it’s important that we played 75 minutes very well, against a great side, and for 15 minutes we didn’t do what we had to do. And they came back to win.
“It’s not over yet, but there’s still a lot of work to be done.”
