Casemiro: “We gifted them the game in the first-half”

“We have to forget about it because we now have a Champions League week and it's important to start well”, said the Brazilian.
Casemiro came on as a substitute after the break in the match against Cádiz. The Brazilian gave his view on the game: “We worked hard and fought, but they played better than us in the first-half. In the second-half we pressured higher up and we had more control of the game, but Cádiz is a quality side and we gifted them the game in the first-half”.

“We have to look at the mistakes, but the attitude in the first-half was not good enough and we've lost three points against a very organised side who knew exactly what they had to do on the pitch. We have to forget about it because we now have a Champions League week and it's important for us to start well as it's a very long and hard week”.

On whether the defensive solidarity has been lost
“No, I don't think so. There's always room for improvement, but in the second-half they didn't have a shot on goal. We have to keep working hard, improve in attack and defence, and make sure we learn from it so that it doesn't happen against this season. There's still time to fix it, we're all together and are a solid group. The more solid we are, the more chance we have our achieving our goals”.

Champions League and El Clásico week
“Each game is a different story, we keep thinking on a game-to-game basis. Now we have to play in the Champions League against a tough team, but we have to forget and correct the mistakes. Cádiz is now in the past and we now have to think about Shakhtar”.
