Rono's own goal shocks Real

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first own goal of his career to send Real Madrid to a shock 1-0 defeat at lowly Granada in La Liga on Saturday, further damaging their already slim hopes of retaining the title.

Ronaldo has scored 21 league goals this season but headed into his own net at a corner in the 22nd minute and his side rarely threatened after that in the face of resolute opposition.

Levante missed the chance to move into the Champions League places when they lost 3-2 at improving Espanyol.

An own-goal from Vicente Iborra put the visitors behind just before the break. Ruben Garcia headed Levante level after an error in the home defence, but Javier Aguirre's Espanyol struck twice in two minutes to seal the win.

Sergio Garcia crossed for Christian Stuani to head Espanyol's second, and then scored from the edge of the area before Obafemi Martins burst clear to pull one back for Levante. Troubled Deportivo La Coruna remain rooted to the foot after a 3-1 defeat at Getafe, despite taking the lead.

Home ’keeper Miguel Angel Moya was sent off and Pizzi netted with a penalty but Diego Castro levelled with another spot-kick at the other end in the 25th. Depor had midfielder Abel Aguilar sent off in the 71st and Getafe took all the points when Alvaro Vazquez and Adrian Colunga grabbed well-taken goals near the end. Osasuna climbed out of the bottom three with a 1-0 home win over Celta Vigo
