“Real Madrid is a great team, but today they were at the same level as them” – the Napoli star did not get over the loss

Matteo Politano feels Napoli ‘dominated’ Real Madrid in the second half of the Champions League thriller where they lost 3-2.

Leo Ostigard and Piotr Zielinski scored for the home team, while Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior and Federico Valverde scored for the visitors.

“After a strong start, we had a 10-minute slump where we conceded two goals. I think we dominated the second half, as for 20 minutes Real Madrid could not get out of their penalty area”.

“We are sorry and bitter after this defeat, but we also know that we are on the right path.”

“We certainly could have done better in front of goal on two or three occasions, but Real Madrid remain a big team and we played at the same level as them today,” Politano told Sky Sport Italia.
