Real Madrid's season has gone from bad to worse after they were dumped out of the Copa del Rey in humiliating fashion at the hands of Leganes.
Madrid had the advantage going into second-leg fixture with Leganes, after winning 1-0 in the first meeting. Madrid fans must have expected a straightforward win at home, but instead were embarrassed by a 2-1 defeat. This meant Leganes progressed to the next round on away goals.
It has been a turbulent season for Madrid and under pressure manager Zinedine Zidane. Los Blancos finished second in their Champions League group behind Tottenham Hotspur after failing to beat the north London club twice. Madrid are also fourth in the Primera Division and a whopping 19 points behind league leaders Barcelona.
This surprise exit from the Copa del Rey is yet another blow to Real's season. Both fans and players were unhappy come the full-time whistle. In particular, Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez was spotted giving his honest assessment of the result on Wednesday night.
