Real Madrid now need to beat Borussia Monchengladbach in Matchday 6 to have any chances of progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League.

"I'm optimistic. It's a difficult moment, but we have to have character and pride," Zidane said.

"Today's result is a shame because we didn't deserve it. We have to win the next game.
