Real Madrid fans have vented their anger on players and the manager after a dismal performance in their 2-1 defeat against Manchester City.
Los Blancos were outclassed by the Citizens who created many chances in the match but failed to make it count.
And the Madridsta's took to the club's official Facebook page to lash out at the manager Zinedine Zidane who kept the inefficient Eden Hazard on the pitch for too long.
One fan said: "It's not because we lost but because we could win. We had a team to solve the mistakes there was but what Hazard did 83 minutes in court."
Another fan added about his time in making substitutions: "Zidane on the margins of mistakes can't be scored in the 68th minute and need to score 2 goals to win and with the team destroyed don't make changes until 83 minutes."
A third added: "The team has no rhythm, tired, Casemiro no power, Hazard the same no joke, the unfortunate defense. late changes and no improvement approach."

A fourth said: "A sum of Ramos expulsion, Marcelo's injury bad day Varane for another time it will be. Up Real Madrid."
Varane who committed both errors that led to City goals apologized and accepted the blame that cost his team the match.
"I want to step up. This defeat is my fault, all mine. I have to accept that. I am sorry for my teammates and all the effort they put in," he said on Real Madrid Twitter.
