Draw leaves us in tricky position – Toni Kroos


The 0-0 draw with Atletico de Madrid on Tuesday evening in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final has left Real Madrid in a tricky position ahead of the return game, according to Toni Kroos.

Los Blancos had the better of the chances at the Vicente Calderon but couldn’t make the breakthrough on the night.

It means they will have to win at the Santiago Bernabeu – a score draw would take Diego SImeone’s team through on away goals.

And while many of the players have spoken about feeling confident of getting a result in front of their home fans, Kroos said the failure to get a goal at the Calderon leaves them in a perilous position.

In quotes published by AS, the German said: “We should have beaten Atletico. It wouldn’t have been unjust, but we have to accept the result for what it is. However, 0-0 is a dangerous result for us with the current away-goals rule.”

The World Cup winner went on to talk about his season overall, and once again spoke of his delight at having joined the club last summer.

“My intention is to stay at the club for a considerable time. I’ve signed a five-year contract and am very happy here and am excited about the future. I’m happy having plenty of time to spend with my family and not having to give daily interviews!”
