Zinedine Zidane slams ‘worst ever’ first half in Club Brugge draw.
Real’s 2-2 draw with Club Brugge leaves them on one point after two Champions League group-stage games.
Emmanuel Dennis’ peculiar brace gave the Belgian side a 2-0 half-time lead against the 13-time European champions, who opened their Pool A account by being brushed aside 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain a fortnight ago.
“We cannot be happy because we have never played as bad as we did in the opening 45 minutes,” Zidane said. “I’m pleased with how we reacted but not for only getting a point.
“The first goal we conceded was laughable. We started badly and we were not focused in the areas of the pitch where the opponent could cause us the most harm.
“The two goals that they scored were a joke, that’s all I can say on that.”
