Real Madrid were held to a goalless stalemate at home to Real Betis on Saturday evening.
Los Blancos blew the perfect opportunity to leapfrog current leaders Barcelona at the top of the summit, after the Catalans had fallen to a shock 3-1 defeat against Levante earlier in the day.
Would N'Golo Kante be a good signing for Real Madrid?
Madrid would have gone two points clear at the top with a win, but they couldn’t force an opening at the Bernabeu despite registering 22 shots on goal and enjoying the lion’s share of possession (63%).
It was a completely different scenario to what had gone before at the Bernabeu, after Real thrashed Leganes 5-0 on Wednesday evening.
It does, however, follow the trend regarding consistency for La Liga’s two biggest hitters this season. Barca and Madrid have both dropped points to sides you would have expected them to beat this time around, with Saturday’s goalless draw against Betis the fourth time Los Blancos have shared the spoils this term.
Real’s official Twitter account shared a clip of the players back in training on Sunday after Saturday’s disappointing draw.
It didn’t go down too well with the fans, however, with many clearly unimpressed with what they have seen from their side this season:
