Madrid exited the competition following a surprise 1-2 defeat which saw Leganés qualify for the semi-final via the away goals rule. This comes with Real Madrid languishing 19 points behind FC Barcelona in LaLiga as the club now move their focus to the Last 16 stage of the 2017/18 Champions League with the tie against PSG instrumental in determining the future of the French coach at the club.

Animo !

After the backlash and frustration being vented by the supporters, Cristiano Ronaldo took it upon himself to launch his own personal message of support via his Twitter account to the squad and Madrid fans. “Ánimo equipo. Ánimo Madridistas. Aún nos quedan muchas batallas por ganar” (Head-up team, head-up Madrid fans. There are still plenty of battles left to be won).
