Zidane: Result tough to accept

Zinedine Zidane lamented “a difficult result to accept” as Borussia Dortmund scored late to hold Real Madrid 2-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane gave Madrid the lead twice, but they would draw their third successive match as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Andre Schurrle also got on the scoresheet for Dortmund.

“The players played a great match, the result is a difficult one to accept because we deserved a bit more, but it is not a bad result,” the Coach told UEFA’s official website after the game.

“I think in the first half we suffered a bit because they pressed a lot and we knew it is a difficult place to come against a good team, but I am very proud of the game we played.

“It was complete in every sense but the shame is it is three games in a row now we have drawn.

“When you concede three minutes from the end it hurts, especially given the effort the players put in.”
