Real Madrid failed to take advantage of Barcelona suffering a shock defeat at Leganes as both clubs lost LaLiga matches on the same day for the first time since January 2015.

LaLiga champion and leaders Barca went down 2-1 at Butarque with Madrid loanee Oscar Rodriguez scoring the winner for Leganes, taking advantage of a Gerard Pique error on Wednesday.

Madrid was therefore handed the chance to move top of the table, but it instead suffered a first league loss under Julen Lopetegui in stunning style in Seville.
