Spain's media on Thursday picked over Real Madrid's 4-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund, just 24 hours after Bayern Munich's 4-0 demolition of Liga leaders Barcelona.
But while there was recognition of Poland international Robert Lewandowski, who scored all four goals for the German side, the focus for the Madrid media was on the failings of their own side.
"Madrid thrown into the abyss," said sports daily Marca. "A lamentable performance without shots, play or defensive rigour."
