Sergio Ramos finally breaks record he has sought for his entire career

Girona celebrate vs Real Madrid

Girona celebrate vs Real Madrid

Despite controlling most of the possession, as well as shots on target Madrid, were unable to hist back against Girona's surprise attack.

MF Toni Kroos, 6 - Provided an excellent driven cross for Casemiro's header and very prominent as Madrid ran the midfield. Just when it looked like Real was out of the La Liga race, the team is firmly back in it after entering the weekend trailing Barcelona by just six points.

"We did not take our chances when we had them and it was really hard for us in the first 25 minutes".

Vinicius Jr. shot over as Madrid looked to regain their advantage, but things nearly got worse for the home side after 71 minutes when Girona's Portu smacked a shot against the post.

Portu was central in the scoring of Girona's two goals in the second half.

Sergio Ramos really can't complain about his reputation, it's well earned.

Eusebio's half-time substitutes Aleix Garcia and Anthony Lozano changed the dynamic of the game and, along with Portu and Stuani, suddenly the visitors were crawling all over the hosts.

An important win for Los Blancos in the Madrid derby, matched with Barcelona stumbling at San Mames saw the gap tighten but, just one week on, things have swung back in their favour.

Upset Alert: Ohio State Is Leading No. 11 Michigan State
After three straight losses to Purdue, Indiana and IL , the Spartans have won their last pair against Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Buckeyes had a three-game win streak going versus Rutgers, Penn State and IN , but lost their last outing to IL .

But while saying goodbye is always hard, after more than 300 appearances and 20 major trophies it's starting to feel as though Marcelo's time at Real Madrid has run its course.

Casemiro teed up worldwide team-mate Marcelo for a drilled finish before the break, but the goal was rightly ruled out for offside.

Courtois left his goal in search of an equaliser and came close to salvaging a point but headed wide deep in stoppage time, leaving Real third in the standings on 45 points, nine behind Barcelona and two behind second-placed Atlético Madrid, who both won 1-0 on Saturday.

75' GOAL! Real Madrid 1-2 Girona: Can you believe this?

Portu had hit the post a few minutes earlier with a booming shot from inside the area.

Though, it must be said, he isn't exclusively responsible for the team's results this season, it feels as though when Real win it's despite him being in the starting XI, not because of him.

Ramos has now been sent-off 20 times in LaLiga, more than any other player in the history of the competition, but Solari would not criticise his skipper.

A yellow card in that game at the Johan Cruijff ArenA means that Ramos is suspended for the return leg at the Bernabeu, meaning his disciplinary record will be wiped should Real progress to the quarter-finals.
