Gerard Moreno scored an injury-time victor as Espanyol beat Real Madrid for the first time in over a decade.

Gerard Moreno's stoppage-time strike inflicted a fifth league defeat of the season on the reigning champions, leaving them 14 points behind leaders Barcelona, having played a game more. Atletico hosts Leganes today and Barcelona visit Las Palmas tomorrow.

They scored a goal in the last minute, but there's no need for us to go over it again.

"There are seasons when things go better than in others, but we're a team and all of us are winners or losers".

Madrid had outscored opponents 20-7 in their five-game winning streak.

After seeing Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale all return to form with the goals in the weekend 4-0 victory over Alaves, his decision to omit two of his "BBC" attacking triumvirate from the side was questionable.

But Zidane's XI still should have had enough quality to beat an Espanyol side with a terrible record against Madrid in recent seasons. We're not looking at the points, we have to focus on the games and try to win them because that's what this badge demands of us.

Instead, Espanyol sustained their momentum at the start of the second half, with Keylor Navas able only to watch as Sergi Darder's header plopped onto the top of the crossbar. It is a defeat that hurts and a bad result - I'm sorry for the players.

The Catalan club were coming off a 6-1 loss against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. With the disappointing result, Madrid are likely to find themselves in the fourth spot if Valencia win away at Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday.
