Real Madrid were dumped out of the Copa del Rey following their shock 4-3 loss to 10-man Real Sociedad in Thursday’s quarter-final at the Bernabeu. 

It was a shock result for Zinedine Zidane’s side, who are top of La Liga and have the best defensive record in the top flight with just 13 goals conceded from 22 games.
