Real Madrid’s loss to Athletic Bilbao was their 25th game so far this season and the report so far does not go in favor of Zinedine Zidane at all.
This has been his worst start to a full season as Real Madrid coach: 14 wins, five draws and six losses.
Los Blancos passed the group stage of the Champions League in the last match against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Last season when they also won the La Liga title, Zidane’s team had only two losses in the same phase, one in the league and one in the Champions League.
This season has been bad compared to last, and Atletico Madrid now have the opportunity to go 10 points away from their city rivals in the title race.
