Real Madrid caught cold in disappointing 2-1 defeat at Valencia

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Shaka Hislop blame poor preparation and lack of creativity for Real's loss against Valencia.

The curse of Mestalla struck again as Real Madrid suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Los Che. Early goals from Simone Zaza and Fabian Orellana set the home side up for victory and although Cristiano Ronaldo pulled one back in the "psychological" zone just before the half-time whistle, Valencia saw out a win that went some way to ensuring their safety while also dealing a blow to Real's title charge.


This was a game in hand and Real still maintain a one-point advantage over Barcelona...

Madrid blow chance to stretch lead as Zaza powers new-look Valencia to win

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Shaka Hislop blame poor preparation and lack of creativity for Real's loss against Valencia.
After Madrid's loss to Valencia, the FC crew debate if they're still favourites to win La Liga, or if Barca can make a run.

Three thoughts from Wednesday's rescheduled La Liga game at Mestalla, as Real Madrid miss a chance to take control at the top of the table with a 2-1 defeat at Valencia.

1. Madrid blow chance to stretch lead

Early goals by new signings Simone Zaza and Fabian Orellana brought a shock 2-1 La Liga victory for Valencia at home to Real Madrid on Wednesday evening. Cristiano Ronaldo's 44th-minute header was not enough, as the La Liga leaders blew a chance to move further ahead of Barcelona and Sevilla...

Andre Gomes isn't solely to blame for Barcelona's struggles in 2017

Alejandro Moreno examines Barcelona's current issues and discusses how they can salvage their sub-par season so far.
Gomes is being unfairly held up as the main problem with Barcelona. But it sells him well short.

Barring the football equivalent of a miracle, Barcelona will go out of the Champions League round of 16 for the first time since 2007. If the Spanish champions lose against Atletico Madrid at the Calderon this Saturday, then the club that has won six of the last eight La Liga titles will, effectively, be on the canvas and taking a count from the referee: and in February, no less.

These are genuinely dramatic facts.

Cynics might judge that the third horseman of the footballing apocalypse came...

Rotated Real Madrid set for tricky road test at suddenly revitalised Valencia

Zinedine Zidane expects his Real Madrid side to be tested by a rejuvenated Valencia.
Nani says Valencia will enjoy the challenge of facing Real Madrid, as they try to pull clear of the bottom teams in Spain.
Zinedine Zidane is pleased to have Gareth Bale back and scoring after the Welshman was sidelined for three months.

Every team in La Liga plays each opponent twice, which gives a sense of fairness to the whole competition. You need to be consistent for nine months, facing the same set of rivals as everyone else. However, the season is long, and competitors evolve -- or, in some cases, regress -- in such ways that a team that might sound like a mighty opponent at some point could become an easy target a few weeks later.

In the case of Real Madrid's next fixture, the exact opposite has happened. They were due...
