Fans slam Courtois and Jovic as Mallorca stuns Real Madrid

The two stars had an off day as the Bernabeu outfit lost grip on its position atop La Liga.

Football fans across social media have singled out Real Madrid pair Thibaut Courtois and Luka Jovic for blame following their respective performances in Saturday's shock defeat against Real Mallorca. Los Blancos finished the encounter at the Iberostar Estadi on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline.

Ahead of the encounter, Zinedine Zidane's side was demoted to second place by Barcelona who secured a 3-0 victory away to Eibar earlier in the day. Injuries to Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, and Eden Hazard meant that the French manager would have to resort to a makeshift lineup in a bid to defeat Mallorca in order to regain the top spot.

This resulted in the inclusion of summer signing Luka Jovic who is yet to register his first competitive goal for the Merengues since joining from Frankfurt. Despite failing to hit a consistent run of form for the Whites, Thibaut Courtois retained his position in-between the sticks.

However, the two stars failed to live out to expectation, with Jovic being severely isolated upfront for the most part of the clash while Courtois failed to stop Lago Junior's seventh-minute strike. The former was unable to register a single shot and a single touch in the opposite box in his duration on the field whereas the latter conceded his ninth goal from the last 14 shots he has faced.
