We can't keep going on like this, we're Real Madrid — Isco

We can't keep going on like this, we're Real Madrid — Isco

But, domestically, Los Blancos look in real trouble.

Isco's 12th minutes opener had put Real Madrid in the lead but second half goals from Cristhian Stuani and Portu ensured Madrid went home empty handed as Girona claims 3 valuable points at the expense of the defending champions.

Both clubs remain in the middle of the table.

Nacho took Varane's place in the heart of the back-line during the second part of that game and the Spanish international is also expected to start alongside Sergio Ramos when Real Madrid visit Tottenham on Wednesday.

But for now it is Real Madrid star Ronaldo who is struggling the most. Lately something is different. "Today they were well beaten, the opponent won the challenges, the team lacked order, got desperate chasing a result".

If the view from the afternoon looked somewhat uncertain on Saturday, by Sunday evening the clouds had well and truly parted and, at least in footballing terms, Girona were a much-needed ray of sunshine, making the darker skies of the day, the brighter skies of tomorrow. "We demonstrated our maturity by not showing excessive euphoria after the whistle".

In fact, Ronaldo - who could face a ban for lashing out in Sunday's defeat - has the WORST shot conversion rate in all of Europe's Big Five leagues.

One reason for this appears to be how the squad was shaken up last summer. They've fought back under pressure before and will hope to do so once again soon enough.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco and Ceballos. The Montilivi Stadium was filled with Catalan flags, with the ongoing independence crisis.

"They are very young players having their first top level experience", Valdano said.

His self-confidence is to be admired.

Overall, Ronaldo's efficiency isn't poor just by his own lofty standards.

Ronaldo scored in the 2-1 win against Getafe earlier this month, but other than that, it's been blank after blank.

The Madrid boss spoke to the club's official site RealMadrid.com and highlighted the need to "analyze" the defeat against Girona. "Many people think you can just turn up and win", he told the assembled media. But nobody should give up on us yet. We have some serious responsibility.

"We still have a chance but we need to play better and work harder".
