Real Madrid 1-2 Leganes (2-2 agg): Real Madrid Crashed Out Of The Copa Del Rey

Spanish giant, Real Madrid Crashed Out Of The Copa Del Rey by a team competing in the quarter-finals for the first time in their history on Wednesday night at the Bernabeu.

Coach Zinedine Zidane will now be playing for his future in two weeks when Paris Saint Germain visit the Spanish capital.

The visitors from the southern outskirts of Madrid earned passage to the cup semi-finals with a 2-2 win on aggregate, on the strength of away goals from Eraso and Gabriel, while Karim Benzema provided the lone score for Real on the day.

Shambolic Real Madrid who humbled by Leganes as Gabriel stuns the Bernabeu in Copa upset are 19 points off the pace in La Liga and now have only the Champions League to play for. If the French knock them out it will surely be au revoir for the coach who won five trophies last year.
