Real Madrid, the star-studded team of Spanish pro soccer, is the punching bag of the league these days. Having lost 1-2 to Getafe, which came up from Segunda Liga, Real Madrid is now 17-3-8 (54 points) as of March 14, widening the gap between the leader FC Barcelona (65 points), and slimming its hopes for the Primera Liga championship. Soccer king Ronaldo is leaving the field with his head down after losing to Getafe.
