Mourinho: I'm surprised by Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is surprised Los Blancos are not leading Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

The Spanish giants, now managed by Carlo Ancelotti, have dropped to third after successive defeats against Barcelona and Sevilla.

I'm a little bit surprised.

I thought Real Madrid would be on top, with more of an advantage, because Barcelona have dropped many points this season than they have in previous years.

Real slip to third

Real Madrid's title challenge unravelled on Wednesday night as they suffered back-to-back defeats with a 2-1 loss at Sevilla.

The loss, coupled with wins elsewhere for Barca and Atletico Madrid, means they are now three points off the pace with their destiny out of their hands.

All appeared to be well when Cristiano Ronaldo put them ahead, but a host of missed chances and a Carlos Bacca brace condemned them to defeat.
