Real Madrid’s disastrous preseason contin-
ued on Tuesday as they lost 1-0 to Tottenham
in Munich.
“Our defeat was well deserved,” Real mid-
fielder Tony Kroos told German TV after the
match. It’s true that we’re not quite in good
shape.”
In the second match of the evening, Bay-
ern Munich thrashed Fenerbahce 6-1.
Champions League runners-up Totten-
ham will play Bayern in Wednesday’s final.
Real will have a chance to find winning form
run against a Turkish side that finished their
game against the host in disarray.
For Spurs, Harry Kane scored the only goal
of the game with a deft finish after pouncing
on a disastrous pass by Marcello, who was try-
ing to prevent a throw-in, after 22 minutes.
Humiliated 7-3 last week by Atletico Ma-
drid, Real could thank keeper Keylor Navas,
starting in place of injured Thibaut Courtois,
for preventing a heavier defeat against an en-
terprising and more aggressive Spurs team.
Madrid survived some goalmouth scares
in the first half. After the break, Dele Alli went
close twice and 17-year-old Troy Parrott hit the
inside of the post.
Zinedine Zidane’s team have conceded
13 goals and lost three of their four warm-up
games.
“We started off very badly, the opponent
took advantage of our mistakes,” said Kroos.
With Gareth Bale, the source of turmoil
in recent weeks, left out of the squad for the

trip to Munich and James Rodriguez yet to
start after returning from Bayern, Real rarely
threatened. Star summer recruit Eden Haz-
ard was invisible.
Zidane’s men then travel to Austria to
face Salzburg on August 6, then to Italy for a
match against AS Roma, the last friendly be-
fore the starting the Spanish league away to
Celta Vigo on August 17.
In the late game, Bayern scored five in the
first half with two goals from Thomas Muller
and one each from Renato Sanches, Leon
Goretzka and Kingsley Coman.
“We played well from the beginning,” said
Mueller who completed his hat trick in the
second half.
“Fenerbahce made mistakes with our
pressing. When you come into the dressing
room at halftime five goals ahead, you neces-
sarily feel good.”
Fenerbahce’s German international attack-
er Max Kruse scored a late consolation goal.
