Real Madrid boss, Santiago Solari has spoken out on the reason why CSK Moscow defeated Real Madrid 3-0 in the last Champions League encounter played on Wednesday.
Solari stated that the real reason why CSK Moscow defeated Madrid at home was because he featured many young players against the visitors.
The 42-year-old made seven changes to his starting XI that defeated Huesca 1-0 in La Liga last weakened.
“I played a team with a lot of young players,” Solari was quoted by First Post as saying at post-match.
“The match was to give many players needed time to improve, because they started and others because they returned from injury, and to give rest to others to try and stay alive in all competitions.”
“I know it’s not a path of roses, and besides, every rose has its thorns,” Solari added. “We don’t like this result, we wanted to finish with a victory.”
