Manchester City striker Erling Haaland shared his thoughts on social media following his team's loss against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The first leg between City and Real ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw, while the second leg concluded 1-1 after extra time. The match was ultimately decided by a penalty shootout, with Los Blancos emerging as 4-3 victors.
Erling Haaland expressed his sentiments on his X (Twitter) account following the match, sharing the following message.
''It's difficult to leave the #UCL this way but I couldn't be prouder of the team, we left our hearts out there and fought till the end. We still have other goals to achieve, starting this weekend, so let's do this. Thank you as ever for the support."
Despite Manchester City netting four goals against Real Madrid across two legs, Erling Haaland remained unable to contribute to the scoreline. With just one shot on target in the first leg, his performance didn't improve much in the second leg. Notably, his headed attempt onto the crossbar could be considered his team's most promising chance in the second leg. Haaland himself would have five attempts, accumulating an xG of 0.68, which surpasses that of any of his teammates. With no goals to his name at the Santiago Bernabeu and throughout the Champions League semi-final against Real last season and this time around in the quarters, doubts about Haaland's impact on the grandest stage are likely to intensify.
Despite Manchester City dominating possession with 67% of the ball and attempting 33 shots, it wasn't sufficient to eliminate Real Madrid, a team Pep Guardiola regards as the kings of Europe.
Nonetheless, despite Haaland's efforts, the lack of support from his teammates and Real Madrid's solid defensive display resulted in the defending champions' elimination. Currently leading the Premier League, Manchester City sit at the top with 73 points, narrowly ahead of both Arsenal and Liverpool, who are tied at 71 points each.
