Copa del Rey – Quarter Final
Real Madrid vs Leganes
8:30pm Wednesday 24th January
Goals from Javier Eraso and Gabriel Pires pulled off a huge shock for Leganes in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, dumping out Real Madrid.
Real Madrid were dumped out of the Copa del Rey at the quarter-final stage by Leganes on Wednesday as a 2-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu proved enough to secure the visitors a famous victory on away goals.
Zinedine Zidane’s men have now lost three of their last five home matches in all competitions and, with a 19-point gap to make up on rivals Barcelona in LaLiga, this was their last realistic chance of claiming domestic silverware and pressure on the Frenchman will inevitably grow further.
Marco Asensio’s late strike had given Madrid a narrow 1-0 advantage in the first leg, but Javier Eraso’s brilliant 25-yard curler got Leganes back on level terms and set the tone for a memorable cup tie.
Madrid were back in front inside two minutes of the second half, the fit-again Karim Benzema scoring his first goal since November after being set up by Lucas Vazquez.
The script said Madrid would serenely close out the tie from there but Leganes had not read it, a thunderous Gabriel Pires header from Eraso’s corner putting them back ahead on the night and in front in the tie for the first time.
