Real Madrid lost 2-1 to Levante but Julen Lopetegui said he's not fearing for his job at this time.

"That is the last thing I am thinking about," he said. "The players do not deserve this punishment. The dressing-room is down after a defeat at home -- football has been unjust with us.

"I am just thinking about lifting them for the important Champions League game on Tuesday [against Viktoria Plzen] where we can turn this dynamic around."

Lopetegui said Madrid were attacking well but lacked fortune in front of goal. "We had 34 or 35 shots at goal, 14 on target, nine corners, four balls off the woodwork, a goal disallowed," he said.

"Stats do not count much in football -- it is goals that count. But we attacked a lot, and attacked very well. I am sure that football will soon start giving to us what it is taking away at the moment."
