Real set unwanted record of 465 minutes without scoring

Santiago Hernan Solari

Real Madrid will reportedly cut ties with Julen Lopetegui, heaping misery on a man whose 2018 has gone about as poorly as possible.

Prior to the September recess, they had scored 12 goals in four competitive fixtures, but subsequently they have mustered only five in seven games, three of which came at once against Roma in Europe. And even worse that he did so with Julen Lopetegui who is proving to be a failure by every passing game and has not really proven himself really well in the earlier stages of his career too.

Karim Benzema then hit the post with an effort from range after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Madrid struck the woodwork three times and had a goal by Diaz disallowed for offside in the final minutes.

Before Marcelo struck, Real's last goal in any competition had come in a 1-0 victory against Espanyol on September 22, with them failing to score in their following games with Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Alaves. But the decorated France worldwide, fresh from winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup, has struggled this season and was particularly culpable in this game.

"I am just thinking about lifting them for the important Champions League game on Tuesday [against Viktoria Plzen] where we can turn this dynamic around".

Varane failed to track the run of Morales, who collected Sergio Postigo's long ball forward before rounding Thibaut Courtois and slotting into an empty net.

- Levante's Roger Marti has scored five goals in La Liga this season, more than any other Spanish player in the competition (alongside Iago Aspas).

Marcelo pulled one back - but only after Real had surpassed their previous highest benchmark of 465 minutes without scoring - but it was to no avail, with this setback ramping up the pressure on Lopetegui ahead of next week's El Clasico at Barcelona.
