Atletico Madrid were held to a goalless draw at newcomers Leganes and already trail Real by four points while champions Barcelona visit Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
The return of prolific striker Antoine Griezmann could not help Diego Simeone's side break down their opponents.
Home keeper Jon Ander Serantes kept out efforts from the France international, Kevin Gameiro and Yannick Carrasco in an inspired display.
Atletico were involved in a thrilling three-pronged title race until the penultimate week of last season but have drawn both opening games against promoted sides, failing to win their first two matches for the first time under coach Simeone.
"We have to get our act together because if we keep going like this we'll be fighting to avoid relegation," said Griezmann.
Elsewhere, Real Sociedad won 2-0 at promoted Osasuna thanks to a strike from new signing Juanmi and an own goal by Unai Garcia.
Eibar beat Valencia 1-0 as Pedro Leon scored the only goal on the rebound after his penalty was saved.
