Felipe Melo was left ‘upset and sad’ at Galatasaray’s heavy opening night defeat in the Champions League to Real Madrid.
Los Blancos ran out 6-1 winners in Turkey, but only after Melo in particular had had a couple of strong chances to open the scoring for the hosts in the first half.
“I feel upset and sad, because this was a result nobody expected,” the Brazilian midfielder commented afterwards.
“And half an hour into the game, who would have predicted 6-1?
“You can play as good as you possibly can, but in the end you are facing Real Madrid, a team consisting of some of the best players in the world.”
