Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Barcelona’s defeat to Levante on Saturday by drawing at home to 14th-placed Real Betis. They’re now level on points with the Catalan side, but the lack of goals compared to last week’s 5-0 thrashing of Leganes will have frustrated Los Blancos fans.
Madrid have scored 21 goals from 11 games this season, and their main striker Karim Benzema has netted seven times so far, putting him on track to beat his tally of last season, 21. However, new signing Eden Hazard hasn’t hit the ground running, scoring just once in six appearances this season, including Saturday’s draw. Real Madrid fans don’t think Zinedine Zidane is picking the right team to fire them to the top of La Liga.
Madrid’s official Twitter account posted a video of Zinedine Zidane’s interview after the game, with the quote: “We started the match with attitude, with a lot of strength, we did well. The only thing we were missing was a goal.” Fans then took to the replies to let out their frustration at Madrid’s inconsistency in front of goal and Zidane’s team selection.

The midfield was the first problem. They didn’t create as many chances as possible to lead a @LaLigaEN table.

If Zidane keeps bringing Jovic in for 14 minutes. How do u expect him to score? The dude gat no playing time. It’s on fair on his part.
It’s fine to sit on the bench. If you don’t wanna play him. But if u choose to play him. Bring him in on time.

No striker for 85 minutes, against most leaky defense. Crazy.

We honestly need a new coach.

It looks like Zidane needed Bale to bail them out! 😏
