Madrid were leaving a lot of spaces and we knew we could take advantage of that.”But Suarez is not writing off ninth-placed Madrid, adding: “Every player and every team can suffer a poor game and a poor performance.“You just have to keep trying and pulling together as a team. These are situations you can understand. They can happen to everyone.”last_img
