Keylor Navas: Cristiano Ronaldo set the bar very high, that's no secret

Keylor Navas: Cristiano Ronaldo set the bar very high, that's no secret

Real Madrid conceded their second fastest goal in the competition as the defending champions suffered a shock 0-1 loss at CSKA Moscow.

Everton loanee Nikola Vlasic scored the only goal of the game early on after a awful back pass from Toni Kroos.

The Russian outfit beat the reigning champions 1-0 despite Los Blancos having won the competition for the previous three seasons. You can not cover the sun with a finger, " Keylor Navas explained according to UK Mirror.

Karim Benzema's goal-scoring woes and defensive issues are also identified as other factors that will affect Real Madrid's campaign this season in the UCL.

"I think this is his best and best goal he has already made for Club Brugge, which was flawless and shows that he is very strong in his head".

Navas said: "We are sad because they had one chance and took it".

The next match for Real Madrid will come away at Alaves this weekend, although Navas wasn't sure if he'll start or if Julen Lopetegui would put Thibaut Courtois back in goals.

"We made some stellar chances, but could not get it in".

"It's not a crisis, but we haven't been performing the way we should", said Modric, who started on the bench. "They used their chance, we didn't use ours".

"We need to understand who our opponents were, multiple European champions and they were incredibly strong".

"Cristiano left a very high bar at Real Madrid", Navas told reporters, as cited by Cadena Cope.

However, Danjuma, who is still undecided over whether to commit his global future to Holland or Nigeria, said he was not totally happy, since his team lost 3-1.
