'Disgraceful': Real Madrid sink to unthinkable 578-game first

Real Madrid have sent the internet into meltdown after setting an unwanted piece of history in their humbling Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Madrid’s 3-0 defeat to PSG ramped up the pressure on coach Zinedine Zidane, who was lambasted by angry fans after the match.

Midfielder Casemiro offered no excuses for Madrid's 3-0 loss to PSG, admitting his team were below their best.

However, that frank admission only begins to tell part of the story about just how bad the 13-time champions were, with an ugly 16-year first painting a worrying picture.

While Madrid had two goals ruled out, they failed to record a single shot on target in a Champions League game for the first time since Opta started collecting the data in 2003-04.

Reports in Spain claim it’s the first time in 578 games across all competitions that the Spanish giants have failed to register a shot on taget in a match.

That's despite boasting an attacking ensemble that includes the likes of Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema.

The incredible statistic left the football world in a collective state of shock.

A brace from Angel Di Maria and a late Thomas Meunier goal saw PSG to their dominant victory in the Group A clash at Parc des Princes.

‘No excuses’ for poor Real Madrid performance

Casemiro said there was still time for Madrid to recover, but the midfielder lamented a below-par performance.

"We have not played well, they [PSG] have had control of the game and we know that it is difficult to play here," he told Movistar.

"They are very strong, they have great players. There are no excuses, we have not played well, but there is still time for many things, to keep working.

"There are many things ahead."

Bale and Benzema had efforts chalked off for Madrid, who were left bottom of a group that also includes Club Brugge and Galatasaray.

The disallowed strike for Bale was a particularly bitter pill to swallow, with many viewers calling it one of the greatest non-goals of all time.

Casemiro felt Zinedine Zidane's side needed to produce close to a perfect display to have any chance, despite the Ligue 1 champions being without Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

"We always try to be aggressive, but of course when the result is 3-0 we know that things are more noticeable," he said.

"We know that if we don't make an almost perfect match here, you don't win. There's a lot of time to change this."

Madrid get a chance to respond when they make the trip to Sevilla in LaLiga on Sunday.
