Real are now fifth in the table, four points behind Barcelona following their rivals' 4-2 win over Sevilla, and calls for Lopetegui to step down are gathering pace.
Real Madrid hit a new low under beleaguered coach Julen Lopetegui as they set an unwelcome club record of 465 minutes without scoring during their La Liga game against Levante as their long search for a goal continued. And even worse that he did so with Julen Lopetegui who is proving to be a failure by every passing game and has not really proven himself really well in the earlier stages of his career too.
Real started 4W-1D in La Liga, but has now lost three of four in the league.
Speculations in Spain claim Lopetegui will be fired imminently.
"Right now that (his position) is the last thing that I'm thinking about", Lopetegui told reporters.
"We have to sit down and think hard about what we are doing wrong and change our path". But the decorated France worldwide, fresh from winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup, has struggled this season and was particularly culpable in this game. The ball is just not going in. "We must keep trying so that this feeling of playing well is translated into goals for us".
Madrid, which began the match without Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema who are coming off injuries, created many chances but was unable to break through the Levante defence.
Madrid hit the bar again when Mariano Diaz sent a thumping header towards goal, while Lucas Vazquez somehow failed to beat Oier Olazabal from close range in another big opportunity. Marco Asensio also had a first-half goal disallowed by VAR.
The result left Madrid fifth and in danger of dropping further down by the end of the weekend's round.
Lopetegui was already under huge scrutiny after defeats to Sevilla, CSKA Moscow and Deportivo Alaves, along with a goalless draw against Atletico Madrid in the last four games.
Madrid hosts Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday in the Champions League, then visits Barcelona on Sunday.
