Real Madrid suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to Real Betis on Wednesday as an inspired performance from their former goalkeeper Antonio Adan and a stoppage-time victor from Antonio Sanabria stunned the Liga champions. No, no, I've always been a shining star, don't worry.

"Next time we have a game at home we have to ensure that we do everything we can to win and change this bad run".

Now check out the seven biggest talking points from this weekend's Premier League action, including Roy Hodgson, Arsenal and the two Manchester clubs. Madrid's 73-game scoring streak was the joint-longest of all time in officially documented soccer history, tied with Pele's Santos of Brazil.

"We're not thinking the league is already lost".

When the Spanish season began, Real Madrid looked streets ahead of their bitter rivals Barcelona. "Things didn't work out for us; we have to start taking our chances". He said: "When the ball doesn't want to enter it doesn't enter".

Gareth Bale almost fired the home side ahead late, with a sensational back-heel of Lucas Vazquez's cross from the right, but Betis keeper Antonio Adan did enough to parry his low shot off the crossbar to keep the scoreline level. "Now I'm thinking about tomorrow's game to try and do better and try to win". Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema, Theo Hernandez and Mateo Kovacic could also be missing for a match where Zidane is set to come up against his son Enzo, who joined Alaves in the summer.

Zidane added: "I'm glad because it's what we want from the players, that when they play, they try to do it well, and he did so".

But he told a news conference: "I don't know if we need more striking options or not - that is a question for the boss".

Now scored 12 goals for Real Madrid from his last 16 shots on target (all comps).

Zidane's side must find their winning form at home, though, as they can not afford any more slip-ups against smaller sides at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, Bale, Modric, Kroos and co were all outshone by 21-year-old Sanabria, who capped his performance with a memorable victor in stoppage time.
