Real Madrid next manager odds: Will Mauricio Pochettino or Antonio Conte replace Julen Lopetegui after Barcelona loss?

Real Madrid have sacked manager Julen Lopetegui after just 14 games in charge.

A chastising 5-1 defeat by bitter rivals Barcelona proved too much for the notoriously trigger-happy Florentino Perez to take, with Lopetegui relieved of his duties ahead of the Copa del Rey clash with Melilla on Wednesday.

Lopetegui, who was named as Real manager days before he was preparing to lead Spain into this summer’s World Cup, won just four of his 10 league games in charge.

Their last league win was a 1-0 win over Espanyol on September 22 and has been followed by four defeats and a draw.
