La Liga: Girona Hands Real Madrid Shock Home Defeat
Just when you thought that Real Madrid are back in their strides and are ready to mount a challenge against Barcelona, Los Blancos have disappointed again.
Sergio Ramos was sent off yet again as Real Madrid crashed to a surprise 2-1 loss to Girona in LaLiga on Sunday.
The Real captain received his 25th red card in club football as Girona came from behind to claim an unexpected victory at the Bernabeu Stadium with goals from Cristhian Stuani and Portu.
Defeat ended Real’s five-match winning run and left them third in the table, nine points behind leaders Barcelona.
It was a result that seemed unlikely at half-time with Real having dominated the opening period and taken a 25th-minute lead through Casemiro.
But the European champions failed to make the most of their superiority and lost control in the second half.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois almost snatched a point when he headed wide having gone forward for an injury-time corner.
