Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric has claimed that his side were not in crisis despite succumbing to a shock 1-0 Champions League defeat at CSKA Moscow on Tuesday. 

Without a win in their last two La Liga fixtures, Madrid were optimistic to turn their fortunes around in the Champions League. Sadly, things just were not meant to fall into place for Julen Lopetegui's side 

Latching on to Toni Kroos' uncharacteristically loose ball, Nikola Vlasic put the hosts ahead in the second minute, and although Real did try their best to get back into the match, they just weren't potent enough in front of goal.

Two defeats in their last three matches - many are hinting towards a crisis at the the Bernabeu, though Luka Modric refuted such claims.

It's not a crisis but we haven't been performing the way we should," said Modric, who started on the bench, as quoted by ​FourFourTwo.

"No doubt, we'll get back to winning ways. As for tonight, CSKA showed they are very well organised and have really good players. They used their chance, we didn't use ours."

Following the thumping 3-0 defeat at Sevilla, Madrid were held to a goalless draw by Atletico Madrid on Saturday. They travel to Deportivo Alaves on Saturday.
