After 11 minutes of the second half passed without Madrid scoring, their goalless streak in all competitions spanned 465 minutes, surpassing their previous record of 464.

The meeting only lasted 15 minutes but SER claimed Lopetegui emerged from the meeting under the impression that he will still be in charge for the UEFA Champions League clash against Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday.

Asked whether he was trying to put a positive spin on things, the former Spain coach said: "I am not trying to convince anybody, just describing what happened on the pitch".
