Marcelo said Real Madrid’s shock loss to Real Mallorca “hurts” as the LaLiga giants lost top spot to defending champions Barcelona.

Madrid crashed to their first LaLiga defeat of the season, with Zinedine Zidane’s 10-man visitors succumbing to Lago Junior’s early strike at Son Moix on Saturday.

“We lost but we must keep going,” Marcelo said. “It hurts to lose because we played well, but we conceded early on and then looked to make our comeback but it was not possible.

“We did not have time to think, they scored a goal and they defended and waited for the counter, that’s no excuse though.

“We need to play well until the final whistle. We have won some games while lacking something. We’re trying to do everything possible to win but LaLiga is tough these days.”
