Klopp: We Made Things Easy For Them

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp admits his side made it easy for Real Madrid, after Los Blancos eased to a 3-0 victory in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg clash.
 
Gareth Bale opened the scoring as early as the third minute, before Isco and Cristiano Ronaldo made it 3-0.
 
Klopp could only named four players in his side that were in the team that thrashed Madrid in last season's semifinal but the German boss does not use that as an excuse.
 
"Yes it is a difference, but the goals we conceded tonight have nothing to do with that," he said.
 
"We were not compact enough. The first goal was too easy, we made things too easy for them.
 
"In the second half we had so many chances and we didn't take one of them, but I know this team can do so much better and that is what we have to think about."
