Football can be a mystery! Real didn't deserve to lose -Zidane

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was left cursing his team's misfortune after Espanyol forward Gerard Moreno struck late to inflict a fifth Liga defeat this term on the Spanish champions.

The result left Madrid in danger of losing third place to Valencia, who were two points behind going into their match at Athletic Bilbao yesterday. Atletico hosts Leganes today and Barcelona visit Las Palmas tomorrow.

Despite Zidane claiming his side "played well in the first half but didn't manage to score" and that "we did not deserve this defeat in the last minute" Madrid were mediocre at best.

Perez is poised to hand second chances to Dani Ceballos and Theo Hernandez though, with both players to be sent out on loan for more game time.

After being sent off and suspended for five games after pushing the referee during Real's 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup first leg on August 13, Ronaldo missed the opening four league games of the season.

Real Madrid entertain Getafe on the weekend before facing the French giants in the return leg at Paris. "We're still involved in a special competition, in the Champions League, and have to prepare for it and go in to it full of confidence". But Zidane's XI still should have had enough quality to beat an Espanyol side with a terrible record against Madrid in recent seasons.

They failed to close the gap on the La Liga leaders though as Gerardo Moreno's 93rd-minute strike earned Espanyol a surprise win. It's a defeat that hurts and it's a poor result.

If we briefly look over their epic double-winning campaign, there were still a remarkable amount of games that needed the captain to come up with the goods, so maybe the writing was already on the wall in 2016/17 but was just ignored because silverware was won.

The Catalan club was coming off a 6-1 loss against Barcelona at Camp Nou Stadium.
