Lopetegui's side were stung twice inside 13 minutes when first Jose Luis Morales and then Roger Marti, from the spot, scored.

Lopetegui surprised many when he made a decision to start Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema on the bench, a move which would backfire for the Spaniard.

Marcelo pulled one back - but only after Real had surpassed their previous highest benchmark of 465 minutes without scoring - but it was to no avail, with this setback ramping up the pressure on Lopetegui ahead of next week's El Clasico at Barcelona. The referee initially gave a free-kick before VAR ruled the defender had handled in the area.

The striker's curling 20-yard strike hit the post in the closing stages, and that was the nearest Madrid came to an equaliser, with Mariano's late tap-in ruled out for offside in a match that kept the officials busy.

Mr Dewji served two terms in the Parliament before he resigned in 2015 to dedicate more time to the family business. The company also quoted him thanking those who had worked for his release, including the police.

After making a bold team selection that included naming Bale, Toni Kroos and Benzema on the bench, another awful result here, coupled with an historically bad goalscoring streak, has him on the brink of the sack. "We had 34 or 35 shots at goal, 14 on target, nine corners, four balls off the woodwork, a goal disallowed", he said. If it had gone in, all the momentum would have been with Madrid.

"It's the third time I've come here and it's third time lucky". But the decorated France worldwide, fresh from winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup, has struggled this season and was particularly culpable in this game.

The Champions League holders have not won any of their last four matches, which included a 3-0 humbling at the hands of Sevilla as well as losing away to CSKA Moscow in Europe.

It was initially believed that Madrid had broken their own record for going goalless, before it was confirmed that in one of the games in their worst-ever run had gone to extra time, adding 30 extra minutes onto the presumed tally of 465 minutes, nearly eight hours of play.
