Real Madrid fans point finger of blame in one direction after Girona draw

Those of a Blancos persuasion are up in arms late on Sunday


Supporters of Spanish giants Real Madrid have flooded to social media on Sunday evening, to make their frustrations known.

This comes on the back of an altogether disappointing day’s work for Carlo Ancelotti’s troops.

Los Blancos marked their return to domestic action a short time ago, eyeing a bounce-back result after being put to the sword in a Champions League meeting with RB Leipzig during the week.

When all was said and done, however, Real, ultimately, slipped up once more.

This came as Vinicius Jr’s opener 20 minutes from time was cancelled out by Cristhian Stuani, en route to an eventual 1-1 stalemate with Girona.

Owing to the champions’ first dropped points of the campaign in La Liga, Clasico rivals Barcelona, in turn, were able to close the gap at the summit to just a solitary point.

Following a frustrating outing for all associated with the club, it should therefore come as little surprise to hear of the Blancos faithful making their grievances very much known.

For the most part, though, it is not those to have taken to the pitch for Sunday’s hosts at the Bernabeu who have been most widely targeted.

Instead, this (dis)honour has been reserved for referee Mario Melero.

Melero was responsible for a number of result-altering decisions this evening, awarding a penalty to Girona, disallowing a Rodrygo finish at the other end, and sending Toni Kroos for an early bath.

In turn, those of a Real persuasion have taken to Twitter in their absolute droves, to take aim at the official in ruthless fashion:
