- Los Blancos suffer a surprising loss to Cadiz at home
- The offensive struggle finally caught up to Real Madrid as they lack ideas in attack and fail to score
Real Madrid have suffered their first defeat of the season against Cadiz with a 0-1 loss. Los Blancos suffered a lot in the first half and Cadiz were unlucky not to score more than one goal.
Lozano scored the only goal of the match in the 15th minute after a great pass that found him in the box 1v1 with Courtois, who almost save the shot with a shoulder deflection but the ball ended up in the goal.
Zidane’s showed how unhappy he is with the performance of his players when he made FOUR subs at halftime, something that he never does. Ramos, Modric, Isco and Lucas Vazquez were taken out for Militao, Asensio, Fede Valverde and Casemiro.
While the subs brought more control to Real Madrid, ultimate they were ineffective as Real Madrid failed to score. Luka Jovic, who came on in the 76th minute for Toni Kroos, scored a goal but it was from an offside position.
Real Madrid have struggled to score and overall lacked ideas in attack for a long time now. Cadiz exploited this in the second half with a packed defense in the box that Real Madrid could not penetrate. Finally, the lack of ideas in attack caught up with Real Madrid as they drop points at the Di Stefano stadium, ending their 15-match undefeated streak in La Liga.
