Carlo Ancelotti reflected on a 2-1 defeat to Espanyol as Real Madrid’s worst performance since he returned to the club.
A miserable week for Los Blancos took another turn for the worse when they missed the chance to restore a three-point lead at the top of LaLiga at RCDE Stadium on Sunday.
Sensationally beaten 2-1 by Moldovan side Sheriff in the Champions League in midweek, Madrid went down by the same scoreline following goals from Raul de Tomas and Aleix Vidal.
Karim Benzema pulled one back, but Ancelotti pulled no punches with his verdict after watching his side slip up before the international break.
The Italian said: “It was our worst game [of the season]. We played badly, there is not much more to say. We have to change our attitude this week.
“The defeat is not an accident because we deserved to lose. We are worried because two defeats in a row at this club is not customary and we must remedy this, correcting the errors.”
