Real Madrid and Barcelona crash to surprise LaLiga defeats


Anthony Lozano’s first-half goal proved enough for an unlikely win for the newcomers, who held off a second-half onslaught at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano with Karim Benzema’s late effort crashing off the crossbar.


Lionel Messi had struck a post during the first half, but it was a frustrating evening for the Catalans as Getafe, who also hit the woodwork during the closing stages, went level on points with leaders Madrid.


Luis Suarez’s early goal set Atletico Madrid on their way to a 2-0 win at Celta Vigo, with substitute Yannick Carrasco adding a second in stoppage time.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice in the first half – one from a rebound off his saved penalty – as Serie A leaders AC Milan beat Inter 2-1 to win the Derby della Madonnina.


Simy put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot, but midfielder Chiesa, a deadline day transfer from Fiorentina, set up Alvaro Morata for the equaliser after 21 minutes.


Juve were down to 10 men on the hour after Chiesa was shown a straight red card for a foul on Luca Cigarini – but thought they had won it when Morata scored in the 76th minute, only for the goal to be ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside.
