After Real Madrid’s 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid on Saturday night, they now find themselves a massive 10 points behind Barcelona after just 12 matches.

Nobody would imagine they would find themselves in such a position after the signs they showed in pre-season.

They thrashed Barca 5-1 over two-legs in the Spanish Super Cup, while they saw off Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.

But draws to Valencia, Levante and Atleti and defeat to Real Betis and Girona has seen Zinedine Zidane’s side on the brink of crisis.

What exactly has gone wrong at the Bernabeu?

Well, Cristiano Ronaldo being banned for five matches for shoving a referee during the Spanish Super Cup victory against Barcelona certainly didn’t help things. Never has the fact he’s only scored one league goal since his return.

However, Madrid-based newspaper, AS, is focusing on referee decisions. In fact, they’ve found 10 decisions “that should been awarded.” Their report comes after Sergio Ramos was denied a spot-kick after he was kicked in the face by Lucas Hernandez against Atletico at the weekend.

Madrid haven't been awarded a single penalty in the league this season and have been given just 14 in the last 100 league matches - compared to Barcelona's 33.

Here are all 10 - images courtesy of AS.

If that’s not enough, the report also states the two goals Real have conceded that were actually offside - The first was Jorge Molina’s strike for Getafe in a match Madrid eventually won 2-1 and Portu’s goal for Girona, which cost Real Madrid a point at Montilivi.

As a result, they claim that Madrid have lost TEN points in the league due to bad referring decisions - one against Girona, two against Valencia, two against Levante, three against Betis and two against Atlético.

Interestingly, that would put Madrid on level points with Barcelona…
