Butragueno admits nervy Real Madrid didn't expect drastic form slide

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno admits their sudden blip has stunned them. Real are now just four points clear of second-placed Barcelona after their 0-0 draw with Valencia.

"The truth this was not expected," confessed Butragueno.

"They have had their chances, we had ours. We may have been a little anxious. I think this is the first home game that we did not score. We must keep going, but this result isn't what we wanted."
