Zidane: 'We won't go crazy now'

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said it was not time for his team to panic following a shock 2-0 loss at VfL Wolfsburg in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series on Wednesday.

"It is always disappointing to lose a Champions League game, especially the way we lost it," he told reporters. "But we need to remain calm and united. We won't go crazy now. We have to believe and know that we have a difficult game and see if we can turn it around. That is what happens when you don't play with intensity. We have to rest and think about the return leg because we have the chance to change everything."

Wolfsburg won on goals seven minutes apart from Ricardo Rodriguez and Maximilian Arnold.

"I think it was the first half that caused us problems," Zidane said. "We were missing concentration at times, just things that happen in football, mistakes that you end up regretting. We did it better in the second half. Before the game the chances were 50-50 but now we must use all opportunities to turn things around and make everything well in the return leg."
