Real Madrid's Ballon d'Or winning midfielder, Luka Modric, says Los Blancos have to be honest with themselves and accept they have a problem.

Complicated league to win: "It's a really tough loss. We started poorly like against Villarreal but we created a lot. Our problem is the lack of goal and the lack of concentration. Until the sending off, we created lots of chances but it wouldn't go in. We have to try to be better."

Solari's work: "The manager is going a great job but he can't score the goals or stop them at the beginning of the game. He has hope, but we are out there on the field and we have to do better to have more concentration. We can't keep cocking up like this in every game. You have to avoid it in the future. Today, we created but we lacked the goal and that's our problem. Solari has our confidence and we won't be looking for excuses with him or blame him."

Crisis: "Missing goals and more unity on the field. At home, they're scoring goals on us and we aren't scoring many. We have to sit down, talk and to see what is our problem. It's not normal, it's not just one time, this has happened many times. You have to find solutions, lots of players are not performing at their best. I have to improve and assume more responsibility. It's a difficult moment for the club but these things have to unite us more." 

Solving the problems: "I think that we all have to be self-critical. We have to speak clearly and say it how it is. We can't see we did well and just didn't have luck. The ball isn't going in and we have to see why. There are reasons why we are bad and you have to see what they are. We all have to take more responsibility."

VAR hurting Madrid: "We can't do anything about VAR. It's going to be there but I don't understand why it doesn't get involved in a situation like Vinicius' penalty. They're confused about when to use it and when it comes into play.... but that's it. That's not our problem, it's not the VAR, we have to focus on other things."
