Gala started Tuesday’s opening Champions League group stage match strongly and had some of the clearer chances in the first exchanges of play.
“Everybody who saw this game will tell you Galatasaray played a very strong opening 30 minutes, proving our team can achieve great things,” Eboue argued after the game to UEFA’s official website.
“However, the difference between Real Madrid and us is that they score goals more easily than we do. We created sufficient chances but could not capitalise - they did.
“In the second half we started making a lot of mistakes in defence as well. I would rather forget about the second half, but then again we have to learn from what went wrong.
“Learning from this is important for the games to come. I prefer not to jump to conclusions. This was just one game of six to play.”
