Zinedine Zidane is facing his first crisis as Real Madrid coach. Defeat at Girona on Sunday sees Los Blancos fall eight points off the pace in La Liga and worse than the result itself was the nature of the performance. The champions have problems all over the pitch.
Madrid had won their previous 13 matches away from home to set a new record in the Primera Division and all of their games on the road this season had ended in victories. Not this time, however, as promoted club Girona came from behind to seal a wonderful win in the teams’ first-ever competitive meeting, Goal website reported.
Real have had their issues already in 2017-18, but those had come at home via back-to-back draws against Valencia and Levante, followed by defeat to Betis and a 1-1 tie with Tottenham.
Now Zidane’s side has lost their impeccable away record and they can have few complaints about Sunday’s 2-1 loss in Catalunya, even if Portu’s winner may have been fractionally offside.
Despite his success so far, Zidane knows that things can quickly change at a club like Real. Up until now, pretty much everything has gone smoothly for the Frenchman, but he now faces a serious test to his coaching credentials, starting against Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday.
