“We now need to give it 100%”, added Valverde.
Real Madrid were narrowly defeated at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, Carvajal had this to say about the match: "We were too forgiving in the first half and Morales scored a great goal. We were not able to get the goal in the last quarter of an hour and it cost us three points. The teams performance dropped off. With the goal came the anxiety and wanting to get on top as soon as possible and that wasn't the way to go about it".
"A week ago we were top of the league and today we are below Barcelona. It's clear that you can't drop off, now it's time to think about next Wednesday's match. It's the first leg of a very tough tie, we'll try to put in a big performance and tip the balance in our favour. We'll think about next Sunday's match after Wednesday".
Campaña's hand ball?
"The referee knows when to call them. Sometimes he calls them and sometimes he doesn't. It's strange, I wouldn't know what to say because even the players themselves don't know. We have to go by the decisions of the referee and VAR".

Valverde: "We had some good chances and did not finish"
"We are sad and disappointed because we wanted a win and we did not get it. We had some clear chances and did not finish. They came at us, scored and killed the game. When you play well and don’t get a win it can be frustrating, but tomorrow we come back to work and we will give it 100%. "
"Now we have two huge games and need motivation, we face strong, challenging teams. We have to play well and change this rut we’re in to show people that we are going for the win."
