Espanyol hit Real Madrid by surprise

Cristiano Ronaldo

In the final minute of stoppage time, Moreno redeemed himself for his missed opportunities when he was left open in the box and made Real Madrid pay for their mistake by scoring the victor in the 93rd minute to give Espanyol the 1-0 win and give Zidane's side their fifth loss in an already disappointing domestic season.

Moreno, who had a goal disallowed for offside in the first half, scored the victor with a shot from near the penalty spot after a well-placed cross by Sergio Garcia following a late breakaway.

Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio and Isco all struggled, the trio squandering the chance to impress ahead of next week's Champions League second leg with Paris Saint-Germain.

The loss leaves Madrid in third place, 14 points behind leaders Barcelona, who have a game in hand.

But centre-back Varane, who played the whole 90 minutes against Espanyol, insists you can never write off Real's chances.

Gerard Moreno scored the only goal of the game in the final minute of injury-time to give Espanyol their first victory over Real Madrid since 2007, a run that lasted 22 games. We always look to win, and even worse, we conceded in the last minute. Although Karim Benzema was still introduced by Zidane in the second half in search of a victor but Madrid failed to capitalize the Frenchman's reinforcement.

Zidane defended his decision to use Sergio Ramos as an emergency centre-forward towards the end of the match against Espanyol in an effort to force a victor.

"We have missed a bit of everything".

Result: "We absolutely didn't deserve that goal". Despite the goal scoring opportunities, Madrid missed a bit everything and played a terrible second half. "We did well in the first half and were disciplined, but in the second half our performance levels dropped off and we weren't as dominant. It's hard after the effort we've put in".

They scored a goal in the last minute, but there's no need for us to go over it again. Today it did not go well.

"You have to learn from these games and think about what's next". Let us know in the comments section below.
