In the 6th round of the Spanish Championship, Real and Barcelona lost one after another. Barcelona lost to Getafe 0:1 away. Real Madrid lost a home match to Cadiz, the La Liga newcomer, 0:1.
These are the teams’ first defeats this season, where both favorites dominated possession but lost shots on target.
Since April 2003, there have been no synchronous defeats of the Spanish grandees before the El Clásico. Then, Barcelona lost a home match to Deportivo 2:4, and Real lost to Sociedad away with the same score.
– We have no excuse; that was a bad game. We’re not happy. But we only lost three points. These are three important points, but nothing more. Now we need to think about the next game, Zidane said after the match.
El Clásico will be held at the Camp Nou a week later, on Saturday, October 24.
