Just when we thought Real Madrid had turned a corner with six straight La Liga wins, last night’s result perfectly sums up Real’s miserable and erratic Liga campaign.
Gerard Moreno struck deep in stoppage-time to give Espanyol a dramatic 1-0 win over Real Madrid at RCDE Stadium on Tuesday.
However, with more than two minutes of added time played, Espanyol broke clear and Moreno crashed the ball past Keylor Navas to give the Barcelona club a first win over Real Madrid since 2007.
This season has seen many clubs get the better of the Los Blancos, breaking records that has been for years. It can only remind us of David Moyes’ first season at Manchester United in the Premier league.
The result ended Espanyol’s 22-match winless streak against Real, while also snapping Los Blancos ‘ 11-game winning streak against the Barcelona-based club.
Madrid were looking to build on a seven-match unbeaten run in La Liga, which had seen them pick up six victories and score 30 goals. Instead, they lost a fifth game this season after only losing three times in the 2016-17 campaign.
