Spain’s record champions Real Madrid surprisingly stumbled in the battle for the national championship. At Madrid suburban club Getafe FC, the weakened Los Blancos did not get past a 0-0 on Sunday evening, the deficit on leaders Atletico Madrid (5-0 in the video!) Is now three points.
Real have been unbeaten in all competitions for 15 games, but must now hope for a slip of the local rival in the intense final phase of the season.
Without the spared Toni Kroos, Real was even lucky, the hosts threatened with relegation had numerous great opportunities and were closer to victory than the favorites.
In defense, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was forced to make some changes, with a view to the upcoming English weeks he also did without Kroos and Karim Benzema at the beginning. The top striker came on after 65 minutes.
Previously, Atletico had sent a signal in the title race after disappointing results recently. Against the bottom of the pack, SD Eibar, the front runner celebrated a 5-0 (2-0) win and set 70 points away from the pursuers. Real (67) is just ahead of FC Barcelona (65).
