Real Madrid new coach Julen Lopetegui suffered a defeat in his first game in charge of the Los Blancos team after his team fell to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United in the International Champions Cup on Tuesday evening at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Mourinho’s men scored two quick goals in the first half with Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera finding the back of the net in the 18th and 27th minutes respectively before Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema scored in the additional time of the first half to make it 2-1.

Despite more ball possession, more completed key passes and even more shot on goal against the Red Devils, Real Madrid was unable to get the second goal at the Hard Rock Stadium.
Manchester United ensured Real Madrid left the Stadium with a defeat as no goal was recorded in the second half.
Up next for Lopetegui’s men is the game against Juventus at FedEx Field in Maryland on August 4, though former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is not expected to feature in this game due to his World Cup commitments while Manchester United will be up against Bayern Munich in a pre-season friendly match.
