The La Liga Champions have surprisingly slumped to a shock defeat as Girona staged a thrilling comeback to win 2-1 at Estadi Montilivi on Sunday.
Two goals in the space of four second-half minutes overturned Isco’s opener as the hosts claimed one of the most famous victories in their 87-year history.
Zinedine Zidane’s side looked to have calmed the storm when Spain midfielder Isco gave them a 1-0 lead at the break, but significant cracks in defence were soon pried open by the promoted side.
Cristhian Stuani equalised with his fifth league goal of the season before attacking midfielder Portu put Girona within touching distance of a victory in their first ever competitive clash against Los Blancos.
And Pablo Machin’s men held on to end a three-match losing run at home in LaLiga in improbable fashion, leaving the visitors eight points off leaders Barcelona after just 10 matches.
