Real Madrid fullback Carvajal: We didn’t do enough for Girona draw

Real Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal felt they didn’t do enough to beat Girona for Sunday’s 1-1 draw.

Vinicius Junior put Real ahead at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 70th minute , before Cristhian Stuani netted from the penalty spot 10 minutes later to level, when Marco Asensio had handled a shot.

Toni Kroos was sent off in stoppage time, his first red card in his career.

Carvajal later said: “We weren’t able to pick up another win today but we’re still top and every team would like to be in our position. We did enough to win the game. They had a couple of chances where they failed to score. We struggled in the first half but we were more fluid in the second.

“A key moment was that superb save their goalkeeper made from Marco’s shot that would have made it 2-0 and pretty much wrapped it up. Then a moment from a set-piece with all the commotion has cost us and we didn’t manage to score in the end. Now it’s about focusing on Wednesday’s final because we want to finish top of the group.”

On the penalty, he added: “The referee viewed it as handball and a penalty, we move on. We’re not going to think about it anymore, it was given and we didn’t manage to win the game. We have to try and fix the mistakes we made today and carry on.”
