Real Madrid suffered their third defeat in four games as a late Manu Garcia condemned Julen Lopetegui & co. to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Alaves on Saturday.

For much of the game, Real Madrid lacked the cutting edge to threaten Alaves bar a couple of chances when luck deserted them. As the minutes ticked by, and Los Blancos failed to score a goal for the sixth consecutive hour, the uneasiness grew.

Real Madrid’s worst fears ended up coming true with practically the final shot of the game, as Manu Garcia scored the winner for Alaves deep into injury time. Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid fans were smarting from the shock defeat, and they vented their frustration out on Julen Lopetegui.

Tweets pointing towards a certain Cristiano Ronaldo’s missing influence were out in full force a well.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema faced the ire of Real Madrid fans as well, following their unimpressive performances on Saturday.
