La Liga first timers, Girona, defeats Real Madrid 2-1

Champions Real Madrid suffered an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at La Liga first-timers Girona and are now eight points behind league leaders Barcelona.

Midfielder Portu back-heeled in the winner in the second half, four minutes after ex-Middlesbrough striker Cristhian Stuani’s equaliser.

On-loan Manchester City full-back Pablo Maffeo and Portu both struck the woodwork for the home side.

Isco had given Real a first-half lead by tapping in from close range.

The result leaves Zinedine Zidane’s side in third place after 10 games behind unbeaten Barca and Valencia, while Girona collected just their third victory of the season.
