The reigning La Liga champions, who now find themselves eight points behind rivals FC Barcelona on the log, took the lead against Girona after Isco found the back of the net in the first half, but their Catalan opposition stole the show with a stunning second-half display that saw them claim a dramatic win.

Zidane blamed his side for losing concentration for the goals after the encounter, but still feels they are in the title race.

“We did well in the first half, but football is about details, and the first goal was a throw-in, and we weren’t focused,” Zidane said, as quoted by the Daily Star.

“I don’t think we played poorly, we didn’t lack intensity or effort, we just lost focus at the most critical moments, and that’s why I’m annoyed.

“We’re eight points behind, but it won’t change anything, we can pick ourselves up, we’ll have better days than this and our rivals are going to drop points.”

Girona manager Pablo Machin had nothing but praise for his troops after their triumphant display against the champions.

“We fully deserved it,” Machin said.

“The fans have been behind us a long time, we promised we’d let them enjoy La Liga and today was the best atmosphere.

“If you’d said to me three years ago the fans would leave singing after beating Real Madrid, I’d have said you were crazy.”
