Expressing his frustrations, the retired goalkeeper took to social media to lay into Madrid's blunt attack.

''These three guys who play at the top of Real Madrid drive me nuts…'' the 41-year-old wrote as quoted by Sportskeeda.

Real Madrid's performance vs Sociedad

Carlo Ancelotti's charges completely dominated the game against Sociedad, recording 61 per cent of the ball possession.

The defending Spanish champions mustered 20 goal attempts, including seven on target but failed to find the much-needed goal.

Benzema equals Raul record

Nonetheless, Karim Benzema continues to write his name into Real Madrid's record books.

The French striker endured a difficult start to the new season as a result of injuries but has slowly found his way back to goal-scoring form for the team.

The volley took Benzema to 228 goals for Real Madrid in La Liga alone, drawing him level with Raul. He also surpassed Real Madrid legend, Alfredo di Stefano's tally of 227.

Real Madrid drop points with draw

Sports Brief earlier reported that Real Sociedad goalkeeper Alex Remiro made a string of fine saves to frustrate Real Madrid in a 0-0 draw Sunday, leaving Barcelona five points clear at the top of La Liga.

After the Catalan giants beat Girona on Saturday Los Blancos needed to win to stay three points behind their rivals in the title race, but Remiro ensured otherwise, keeping third-place La Real on the champions' tail.

Vinicius had a string of good chances thwarted by Remiro among other Madrid chances, as Carlo Ancelotti's charges sparkled but failed to find the much-needed goal their performance deserved.
