Real Madrid star Dani Carvajal has slammed the players 'not worthy of the first team' after the European champions suffered their eighth defeat of the season.
Manager Santiago Solari offered several 'homegrown' players a chance in the form of Federico Valverde, Marcos Llorente, Jesus Vallejo and Javier Sanchez as CSKA completed the double over Real - despite finishing last in the group.
To say they didn't impress would be an understatement and Carvajal was particularly vocal after the 3-0 defeat.
"Three weeks ago there was talk that the homegrown players could play," he told Movistar+.
"But it turns out that they might not worthy of the first team."
Carvajal also touched on the home supporters jeering playmaker Isco after he missed a clear-cut opportunity for the Group G winners.
"I have not seen if he was whistled by the fans or not, but the only thing I can say about Isco is that he has been here for many years and he is a brave player.
"When things are not going well, he asks for the ball and tries to change the game rather than disappear."
