Real Madrid secured an expected win at home to Getafe in La Liga this weekend, but the club, and current president, were plunged into further crisis at the club’s exclusion from the Copa Del Rey competition, despite victory over Cadiz in midweek.
Madrid were found to be guilty of fielding an ineligible player in the fixture, and the authorities have duly removed Real Madrid from this season’s competition. This now plunges the club into further crisis, and heaps more pressure on the current manager, and current president.
The Spanish side are now preparing for their final Champions’ League group match this week, although qualification to the knock-out round is already secure. Following this tie, Real Madrid face a tricky test away to Villarreal next weekend, knowing three points is vital to maintain the pressure on La Liga leaders Barcelona, who dropped two points this weekend themselves.
