Real Madrid have now lost three continuous Champions League matches for the first time for over 30 years as Zinedine Zidane's side couldn't defeat their most exceedingly terrible first-half performance in over 15 years in the competition. It's just as well my players reacted in the second half.

Reguilon is the hot topic amongst the Santiago Bernabeu faithful, as it was Marcelo who delivered a woeful display against Shakhtar Donetsk - a player who Zidane kept instead of the Spain global.

'We lacked the confidence to start the game as we know how, ' he said.

Madrid were 3-0 down at half time, with goals from Tete and Manor Solomon along with a Raphael Varane own goal. I'm the coach, I have to find the solution and I didn't get it tonight.

There are now 6,474 active, lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario, and 276 of those cases are hospitalized. Of all the cases ever confirmed in Ontario, 25 per cent are individuals above the age of 60.

Having lost 1-0 at home to Cadiz in La Liga on Saturday, Madrid might have been thankful that no fans were at their training ground to watch a stunning opening 45 minutes in which they conceded three times during the opening period for the first time since Lyon visited in September 2005.

But it's vital for Zidane to get his team back on track as he is starting to be questioned., His players are used to getting back up again after setbacks, but after two such bad defeats they need to produce something now.

There was one last twist, though, as the goal was ruled out for offside - a cruel end to a night to forget for Madrid ahead of El Clasico against Barcelona on Saturday. We have to do better in the next games. "We will have to be at our best to win". "We have to be together, positive". We did not enter well, they scored the first and we lowered our heads ...

The newly introduced player went on to beat the keeper and make it 2-3, giving Madrid a fighting chance with 30 minutes left on the clock.
