Lopetegui booed as Madrid suffers worst scoring drought

  • Soccer Under-fire Lopetegui not thinking about sack as Real slide continues

Los Blancos are now on a five-game winless run in all competitions, losing four times in the process.

By the time Marcelo had finally found the net in the second half, Lopetegui's team had gone 481 minutes without a goal, passing the 464-minute dry spell Madrid endured in 1985.

But the upcoming schedule, with Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday and then El Clasico at Camp Nou next Sunday, count in Lopetegui's favour - the last Madrid coach to leave the week of a Clasico was Schuster, who was sacked days before the game in 2008 for saying his team had no chance of beating Barcelona.

They went on to lose the La Liga clash 2-1.

Marcelo said: "We are with the coach until the death".

Just to make it even worse, Real are now trailing 2-0 to Levante (having conceded twice within the first 12 minutes) with roughly 20 minutes left to play at the Bernabeu - this despite rattling off 22 attempts on goal to the visitor's five.

Roger Marti made no mistake with his spot-kick, despite Courtois guessing the right way, to leave Real with a mountain to climb.

He had left Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema on the bench, perhaps due to fitness issues, and the gamble backfired, despite both making a difference when brought on in the second half. They suffered a two-goal swing as a result of the Video Assistant Referee, one against called as a penalty, and one ruled out for offside. "What I want is to get the boys back up as soon as possible and prepare them for the next match we have in three days [against Viktoria Plzen]".

The pressure continues to mount on head coach Julen Lopetegui, whose side slumped to a 2-0 deficit at home against Levante, despite enjoying the majority of the pressure in the game.

Real are tempted by the possibility of selling the 28-year-old, and know they could demand a big fee from United. "This team believes in what they are doing".

As if that weren't enough, Conte neither confirmed, nor denied the reports, with his agent Pastorello writing to "El Partidazo de COPE" to say: "I'm sorry, but he doesn't want to talk about his siituation".

However, VAR once again proved their undoing, the system showing Asensio to be offside as Ramos headed the ball.
