Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho loses consecutive home games for the first time in nine years

The Special One loses two straight matches at home for the first time since 2002, back when he was coaching in his native land

Real Madrid’s loss to Real Zaragoza today signals the first time in line years that coach Jose Mourinho has lost consecutive competitive home games.

Madrid’s 3-2 defeat to Zaragoza follows Wednesday’s 2-0 reverse to Barcelona in the Champions League. Both games took place at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The last time Mourinho lost two straight at home was back with FC Porto. The Portuguese outfit lost to Beira Mar in the Primeira Liga on the February 22nd before falling to none other than Real Madrid in the Champions League second group stage five days later.

These recent two losses come less than a month after Jose's record of 150 unbeaten home league games was smashed in Madrid by lowly Sporting Gijon, who pulled off a 1-0 victory to end a streak stretching all the way back to that Beira Mar fixture.

That Sporting fixture included, the capital outfit have now lost three of their last four competitive home fixtures.
