The German said that the team “helped much” in the first goal, marked by Dentinho, and resigned: “We do not have left more than to win the last party”.
Toni Kroos, German midfielder for Real Madrid, was critical of his team’s defensive performance in the first goal in the 2-0 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk.

“It’s difficult because we played a good first half, we controlled everything and they didn’t shoot at our goal and we created good chances. We didn’t start the game badly, but that’s a bit what happens this season; we need to score because in the games we have scored first we have had a different type of confidence. If the rival scores first, it is harder for us” he said to ‘Movistar +’.
“If you see the first goal is not a good move, we help them out and a little bad luck, of course. But it’s not a goal we can’t defend. We lack the luck above; we did not score and they scored with the first shot,” he continued in the analysis.
Kroos tried to explain the difference in level from the last Champions League match against Inter, which ended in a 0-2 victory.
“We scored early there, but our first half was more or less the same. We saw in Milan that being in the lead gives us confidence. With the 2-0 we lacked a little belief in the comeback; that with two shots you get two goals is difficult,” he said.
“It’s not a question of physicality. Everyone has to talk about how they are physically, I’m fine, but if you lose you can say what you want; it’s all negative,” he added.
The German midfielder is still confident that they can qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League: “If you win you are always more confident than when you lose, that’s normal. As a team you feel better when you win, but we have to win again; keep working. With the situation in the group we only have to win the last game and see how Gladbach play Inter, because if Borussia Mönchengladbach don’t win it, we have it in our hands,” he said.
