Cristiano Ronaldo On Real Madrid’s Lyon Defeat: We’ll Fight Back!

[/caption]The world’s most expensive footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, is angry at Real Madrid’s defeat to Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday. But he is unwilling to give up the fight.

Los Blancos will play the second leg of this fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu on March 10th, and their mission will be to overturn the 1-0 defeat which Les Gones inflicted on them at the Stade Gerland.

One thing that Real Madrid will surely have to consider will be to back up their performance.

The Spanish giants failed to impose their game throughout the match against Lyon, and while some might blame the freezing weather conditions which were below 0 degrees Celsius, Cristiano Ronaldo thinks otherwise.

Spanish paper Marca gave a report about the Portuguese’s post match press conference:

“There are no excuses; neither the condition of the pitch, nor anything! We played a poor match and Lyon were better.”

In a poll conducted by Marca, it was revealed that a wide range of Real Madrid fans have lost faith in their team concerning Los Blancos’ UEFA Champions League quarter-final qualification prospects.

But for Cristiano Ronaldo, there is no reason to be pessimistic.

“During my time at Manchester United, we lost first legs many times. Still, we progressed.

“We [Real Madrid] will come back from this [Champions League defeat to Lyon].”
