Unal’s goal proves the difference
Getafe ended Real Madrid’s 15-game unbeaten streak, beating the LaLiga leader 1-0 on Sunday.
Striker Enes Unal got the host’s winner in the ninth minute, stealing the ball from Real defender Éder Militao near the goal and beating Thibaut Courtois.
Real came close to finding the equaliser in the 17th minute, but Luka Modric’s strike hit the crossbar. Eden Hazard and Marcelo came on as half-time substitutes but could not spark a comeback.
Real’s previous loss came on Oct. 3 when it fell 2-1 at Espanyol. Since then, it had won 13 and drawn two across all competitions. Carlo Ancelotti had steered Real to wins over Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Inter Milan during its unbeaten run.
