"I am not worry by Azaro's goal-scoring struggles as I am confident that he will make use of the score chances in the coming games," Lasarte told the post game's press conference.

"Real Madrid's striker Karim Benzema spent a long time without scoring until he became the team's top scorer," the Uruguayan coach added.

"I always hold meetings with Azaro and all strikers to teach them how make use of the score chances."

"We have to worry if we don’t make more score chances but do it every game, so we are working to avoid losing the score chances in the coming games," Lasarte said.
