Real Madrid slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Sevilla on Saturday as Jose Mourinho’s defending champions suffered a second defeat in four matches, their worst start to a La Liga season in over a decade.

Piotr Trochowski got the only goal for Sevilla as Real’s haul of just four points so far condemned the Spanish giants to their most damaging opening since the 2001-02 season.

Real are also eight points behind rivals Barcelona who won 4-1 at Getafe to retain their 100 percent record.

Malaga beat Levante 3-1 to record their best ever start to a La Liga season with 10 points from four games to stay two points behind Barca in second position.

French international full-back Aly Cissokho starred as Valencia beat Celta Vigo 2-1 to record their first win of the season.
