We knew that if we played our game, we would have the chance to win'.

DF Sergio Ramos, 6 - Whether bothered or not by a doping story breaking overnight, Madrid's captain and defensive leader must take responsibility for a back four which was once again totally overrun.

Eibar continued to have their moments down the other end, however, with Kike heading a Joan Jordan cross wide of the post in the 15th minute of action. His attempt was brilliantly kept out by Courtois but Escalante managed to bundle the ball home from inside the six-yard box.

Benzema, 30, is now the most experienced forward at the club as he closes in on a decade at the European champions.

What does it mean?

Eyebrows were raised when Lopetegui was named as Zidane's successor during the summer, not helped by the farcical nature of the appointment which saw the 52-year-old sacked as Spain head coach in the process.

The hosts then made it 3-0 in the 57th minute when Cucurella's clever low cross was turned into Kike's path by Enrich, and the forward simply could not miss from close range.

Saturday's defeat left Madrid with one of the league's worst defences with 19 goals conceded.

Without the iconic presence of Zidane on the touchline and the galvanising influence of Ronaldo leading from the front on the pitch, Madrid look short of ideas, devoid of influence and shot of confidence. The Bernabeu board may be wondering if they showed faith in the right man. The match starts at 12:00 on 24 November 2018.

Eibar, meanwhile, shoot up to seventh, a reward for their first ever victory over Real Madrid at the 11th attempt, inside their tiny 7,083-capacity Ipurua.

The Madrid dressing room was feeling down after a fifth defeat in 13 La Liga games this season, Solari said, but he said there had been enough positives in his own four games in charge so far to remain optimistic about their season.

"Eibar played their game, direct, taking advantage of the loose balls; we lost our battles", said Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
