Real Madrid is lacking the firepower in the upfront after scoring just a goal in their last three games.

“We created so many chances… we’re going to continue; it’s going to go in [eventually]. “Now it’s not going in, but we can’t let our heads drop.

“We have to think that it’s been a very good year. “We’re ending a bit flat but we’re looking forward to starting 2020. “I don’t think [the lack of goals] is a problem, but everyone has their own opinion. “We’re calm. What we’ve done in the last four or five months was good.
