Powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona out of Copa del Rey
Feb 07, 2020
Real Madrid have crashed out in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey, after a 4-3 home defeat to Real Sociedad.
This was the first time the Spanish giants conceded four goals in a game under Zinedine Zidane, in what was also his 250th match in charge.
It was an unexpectedly poor defensive performance, with Real currently holding the best record in Europe's top five leagues, in terms of goals conceded.
Elsewhere, record 30-time winners Barcelona are also out, after being beaten 1-nil by Athletic Bilbao.
EPL clubs want summer transfer window aligned with rest of Europe
Premier League clubs have voted to change the summer transfer window, to bring it in line with the rest of Europe.

However, the deadline has now been changed to the usual point at the end of August/early September.
The 2020 closing date will fall on September 1st, while it's also been confirmed that the season will begin on Saturday, August 8th.
