Espanyol's Spanish forward Gerard Moreno, left, scores a late victor against Real Madrid at the RCDE Stadium in Cornella de Llobregat. Real, meanwhile, will fall 17 points behind leaders Barcelona if the Catalans overcome Las Palmas on Thursday.

"I'm angry for my players, because they conceded a goal in the last minute. the opposition did not enjoy many chances", said the Frenchman.

"We performed better in the first half than we did in the second", the France global said.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane rested Ronaldo ahead of next week's visit to Paris St-Germain in the Champions League last 16, which his side lead 3-1 from the first leg, and selected Gareth Bale at centre forward in a much-changed team.

REAL MADRID appeared to have turned the corner in 2018, having seemingly looked on course to miss out on Champions League qualification following a a shocking start to the season.

Real Madrid entertain Getafe on the weekend before facing the French giants in the return leg at Paris. Espanyol, who moved up to 13th in La Liga, had not won in any of their past 20 games against Madrid, drawing three and losing 17. Zinedine Zidane chose to rotate his squad as he rested Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro for the away trip to the Cornella.

Their previous league win came eight rounds ago, at Levante UD.

Espanyol had never beaten Madrid at RCDE Stadium, where it began playing in 2009.

Survival of the first 10-15 minute onslaught has seen teams eek out draws and wins this season, and the lack of late headed winners from Sergio Ramos hasn't been able to save them either.

Keylor Navas has stressed that Real Madrid must have the "character to keep going" after crashing to a 1-0 defeat at Espanyol on Tuesday night. We have to focus on the games and try to win them because that's what this badge demands of us. "This result restores our confidence after a series of poor results".

Portu scored a 14th-minute victor to put Girona in seventh place, two points behind sixth-place Sevilla.
