Antonio Rudiger conveyed his dissatisfaction with Real Madrid’s performance against RB Leipzig despite their qualification for the UEFA Champions League’s next round. Despite having a narrow 1-0 lead from the first leg, Real Madrid struggled in the Round of 16 second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Rudiger, while acknowledging his own decent performance with three clearances, three important blocks, and winning all his duels, expressed disappointment, stating that despite the qualification, there were issues to address.

Real Madrid’s underwhelming display was evident in their statistics, with only 3 out of 11 shots on target despite enjoying 54% possession. The manager acknowledged the challenge posed by Leipzig, who played with quality and without pressure, while Real Madrid seemed inhibited from the start.

Looking ahead, Real Madrid will shift focus to league action, where they aim to maintain their lead atop the La Liga standings. Despite the disappointment in their Champions League performance, the team aims to regroup and deliver better results in their upcoming matches, starting with their fixture against Celta Vigo on March 10th.
