Without Eden Hazard, still injured, but with Thibaut Courtois in the goal, Real Madrid lost 0-1 to Cadiz on Saturday during the 6th day of La Liga.
The promoted dominated the start of the match, seeing first Sergio Ramos save on his line a shot from Alvaro Negredo (2nd) and Courtois relax on a send off from Juan Cala (14th).
Well served by Negredo, Anthony Lozano won his duel against Thibaut Courtois. The goalkeeper of the Red Devils, who bypassed the three matches of Belgium during the last international break, could only scratch the ball of the Honduran striker (0-1, 16th).
Courtois, author of an unusual error of judgment on a cross from the right, avoided the correctional by seeing Lozano miss the 0-2.
Dominated, Zinédine Zidane changed no less than four players at halftime. But the Madrilenians, who touched the crossbar via Karim Benzema, could not reverse the trend.
Real are still in the lead with 10 points, like their opponent in the evening who despite everything has one more game. FC Barcelona, which will only play its fourth game, could come back to the height of its rival in the event of victory on Saturday night in Getafe.
