After winning the El Clásico 2-0 last weekend, Real Madrid suffered a 2-1 shock defeat at the hands of Real Betis at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday with Zinedine Zidane describing the encounter as their “worst game of the season.”
“We lacked everything today [Sunday]. It was our worst game of the season,” said Madrid coach Zidane.
“We lacked energy, fluency, possession, aggression. It was a bad day and that can happen. I am responsible. We can’t lose our heads but we can’t be happy either.”
Betis move up to 12th on the La Liga table while Madrid drop to second place with Barcelona returning to the summit after their hard-fought 1-0 over Real Sociedad at Camp Nou thanks to a late penalty goal by star player Lionel Messi. Barca are now two points clear.
