◼️ A surprising defeat for Real Madrid against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, another match in which the whites didn’t score.
Real Madrid can’t raise its head. Surprising defeat of the white team against CSKA in Moscow, a painful slip because of how it happened and because the team chained three consecutive games without winning … and without scoring a goal. In fact, the data is even more impressive, because the last goal Real Madrid scored was from Marco Asensio against Espanyol on the fifth matchday of the league. It was in the 41st minute of that match, so the team led by Julen Lopetegui has been exactly 319 minutes without celebrating a goal (90 against CSKA, 90 against Atlético, 90 against Sevilla and the last 49 against Espanyol).
❌ First goalless three-game streak since 2007
❌ First goalless European night for 32 matches
It’s fair to say Real Madrid are missing Cristiano Ronaldo.

The goal problem begins to be serious with this Real Madrid team. The Merengue team conceded the goal in the first minute after a serious error by Kroos. There was plenty of time to turn the score around, but that moment never came. Casemiro and Benzema ran into the posts in the first half, and in the second half there were also very clear occasions, like Mariano’s head in the final moments, but the ball just didn’t want to go in.
The white team has three consecutive matches without scoring, a worrying statistic that didn’t happen since 2007 with Fabio Capello as head coach at that time. Now, the Lopetegui team takes almost five and a half hours of play without scoring a goal.
