Real Madrid slump to second La Liga loss in three games

Real Madrid slump to second La Liga loss in three games

Real now sit 16 points behind league leaders Barcelona in the table and Kroos conceced that the gap between the two bitter rivals will be hard to surmount.

Zinedine Zidane has raised alarm over negative things being said about his team in the buildup to Saturday's tie against Villarreal which Madrid surprising lost by a lone goal. "In hard moments we need the fans to be on our side".

Furthermore, our referenced source is also reporting that Zidane can remain in the Real Madrid hot-seat for as long as he wants.

It's fair to say that Madrid didn't deserve to lose at home to Villarreal on Saturday after producing 28 shots, but they did lose and Villarreal followed the footsteps of Betis and Barcelona in inflicting a home defeat.

How do you even begin to make sense of the supposed "best team in the world" losing yet another game, this time to Villarreal, who'd never previous won at the Santiago Bernabeu? "This result sinks Madrid further into the sombre mood that has invaded everyone, including Zidane".

Ronaldo has just four league goals this season, while Gareth Bale is struggling for fitness and form and Karim Benzema has been injured.

Calderon concluded: "You have to remember (Alfredo) Di Stefano again: 'A big team - Real Madrid is the biggest for its history - it can not complain of refereeing decisions, of undeserved and unfair results or of bad luck". Just last season they scored 14 times in the last five minutes of games, often when Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez (both of whom left the club last summer) had been sent on as subs.

Without late goals to save them this season, Zidane's tactical naivety in games has been exposed, and he doesn't seem comfortable with making changes until it's too late.

It was one-way traffic in the first and Ronaldo went close again after 31 minutes when his attempted lob sailed just wide of the upright.

Fornals struck with three minutes left to leave Zinedine Zidane's wasteful side fourth and nearly certainly leaves the defending champions out of the title race.

Predecessor Rafa Benitez was sacked nearly exactly two years ago after taking 37 points from 18 La Liga games.

Real supremo Perez will need to tread carefully though.

Atletico Valencia rode their luck to win 2-1 away to Deportivo la Coruna, coach Marcelino Garcia will be especially pleased after a week which also saw his side reach the quarter-finals of the King's Cup.
