Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has denied that the European champions are in crisis following their shock 1-0 loss to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Madrid succumbed to a second-minute goal from Nikola Vlasic on Tuesday as the holders crashed to a second defeat in three games.
Casemiro, Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz all hit the woodwork for Madrid, who failed to score for the third successive match in all competitions for the first time since January 2007.
In total the side have won just twice in their last six games, drawing twice in La Liga while going down to Sevilla and CSKA during that disappointing run of form.
With rivals Barcelona also dropping points, however, they remain tied with the Catalans at the league summit with 14 points from their first seven outings.
Pressure is mounting on head coach Julen Lopetegui but Modric, who started off the bench on Tuesday, is adamant Madrid will arrest their slump.
“It’s not a crisis but we haven’t been performing the way we should,” said Modric, who started on the bench. “No doubt, we’ll get back to winning ways.
“As for tonight, CSKA showed they are very well organised and have really good players.
“They used their chance, we didn’t use ours.”
