Keylor Navas admitted he was to blame for the Real Betis goal at the Bernabeu on Sunday but denied he should have been sent-off.
The Costa Rican goalkeeper palmed Antonio Sanabria’s close-range shot into the net moments after he could have seen red for clattering Darko Brasanac who was clear through on goal.
"I stopped the ball, and when I went to gather it my position was not the best,” Navas explained regarding his error in the mixed zone afterwards.
“I touched the ball with my right hand, and it's bad luck. It is not good, you do not want to see yourself in such circumstances. I had to move on.
"The collision with Brasanac? I tried to touch the ball with my head, and we collided.
"I never thought of going for the player, in any moment, my intention was to go for the ball. He was also coming at me, and we collided.
"I was relaxed at having done my job, that is why I try and do my best every day for my teammates, the coaching staff who have faith in me, and my family.
“We are a team, they are always with me. I know they trust in me, and that convinces me that these things will not happen again."
