Real Madrid dumped out from Copa Del Rey by Leganes making History

In the Real Madrid history, They have been dumped out of Copa Del Rey by such a small team Leganes despite winning the First Leg away from home. Leganes were the first side to beat such a huge club Real Madrid at there own home after losing first leg.

After all, Los Blancos had never once in their history failed to defend a first-leg Copa lead at their home ground and Leganes, though much improved this campaign, is still a bottom-half team in La Liga. Javier Eraso’s goal just after the half-hour mark put the home side on notice, as Madrid failed to register a shot on target in the first half for just the second time this season. Karim Benzema’s equalizer just after the break had not enough as Gabriel putting the visiting side back in front just seven minutes later, and Madrid would never recover.

The loss is an extreme pain for the Los Blancos as they are facing the strong team in Champions league, Paris Saint as Neymar is in brilliant form. so, the worry continues rise on for Zizzu. Atletico Madrid also has been dumped out from Copa by Sevilla yesterday.

For Leganes, the win over Madrid is one for the history books for another reason as well, with the club securing a first trip to the Copa del Rey semi-finals. The final will be in between Valencia, Sevilla and the winner between  Barcelona Vs Espanyol.
