Getafe frustrated their guests of Sunday night, Real Madrid, by winning 1-0 at home (read the full football news). And now, Los Blancos head coach Carlo Ancelotti reviews a match he received a yellow card for.

An aggressive and disciplined Getafe, who deserved the victory, thus won just their fourth match in La Liga this season.

The hosts took a surprise lead in the ninth minute when Enes Unal pounced on an error. It was Real defender Eder Militao who erred, and, as a result, Unal fired past Thibaut Courtois.

Real manager Carlo Ancelotti called on Eden Hazard and Marcelo at half-time but they struggled and created just few chances.

Meanwhile, Karim Benzema was kept quiet and Vinicius Junior was unavailable after testing positive for COVID-19 this week.

And the result, Real’s first defeat since they were beaten by Espanyol on October 3, means the LaLiga leaders stay eight points clear of second-placed Sevilla in the table.

Real have dropped five points in their last three La Liga games following their 0-0 draw against Osasuna recently.

They welcomed back a number of first-team players into their starting lineup following a COVID-19 outbreak. This included Modric, Marco Asensio, Rodrygo and Thibaut Courtois, who tested negative following his positive result on Wednesday.

But this wasn’t enough to beat Getate and Real’s frustration during the opening period was palpable.

So much so that coach Ancelotti received a yellow card for his protests on the sidelines.

“A difficult game, a tough game,” Casemiro said afterwards. “We have to be fair, we have to say it was an individual error, we all make mistakes, but it was a player [Militao] who has been one of the best in the team recently, but that’s football. You have to be careful. We fought and we tried, but we have to change this, we have to think about the cup game now.

“It’s not just Getafe. We’re having some problems when we play against a line of five at the back, we haven’t got three points in those games, so we have to work and keep working.”
