GETTY Girona stunned Real Madrid to claim a dramatic 2-1 win at the Montilivi stadium

Girona Real Madrid

Consider this: Girona are jointly owned by Pere Guardiola, brother of Pep, and the City Football Group, Pep's employers.

Real Madrid midfielder, Casemiro, talked up the chances of the team after the loss but warned against giving up too soon.

The celebrations will never be forgotten.

"We will go home, rest and recharge the batteries".

Madrid clearly have a talented squad, but they need to get their domestic focus back quickly.

Now, again: factor this in if you want to understand what's happening to Madrid.

Relative to what is expected of a back-to-back European Champion?

Above all, however, without such passion, Girona would most definitely not have overcome the enormous challenge posed by Real Madrid and reigned supreme in a confident - yet comfortable - winning display. In defence, he was solid and often got the better of his Brazilian counterpart. It's like their powers are zapped right now. The Portugal international, who became the first 18-year old to turn out for the national team since Ronaldo when he made his debut against Russia in 2015, is a Benfica youth product and signed for Paris Saint-Germain for €30 million in January. Simply that minor details went against them.

Real are third in the standings on 20 points, four behind second-placed Valencia while unbeaten leaders Barca have 28. It's tough, but this team has defied history already last season. "It was concentration that cost us".

Girona had an equal amount of efforts, but Real dominated possession.

Let's fast forward to next Summer.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has insisted that his team do not need to panic amid their patchy run of form in La Liga. There have been some excellent one-off performances, such as the Champions League win at Borussia Dortmund, but generally the level has been below expectations.

"We can still overcome this", Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. Benzema missed six matches because of a hamstring injury between September 10 and October 9, and Bale has been sidelined since September 27 with a calf injury. I think he stays though, in a Higuain / Benzema type rotational system with a new striker. "When we lose, it's for a reason", he eventually conceded. It's a big one tomorrow!
