So on the same night on Wednesday, in the space of just about 2 hours, Spanish football giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona were ridiculously defeated by Leganes and Sevilla.
The Catalans were upset by the previously winless Leganes before the Blancos failed to capitalize by slumping to a dismal 3-0 loss at Sevilla
The Catalans stumbled to an unexpected 2-1 defeat at lowly Leganes before Real Madrid suffereed a humiliating 3-0 defeat at Sevilla, blowing the chance to move above their great rivals at the top of the table.
Both Leganes and Sevilla reportedly produced superb, electric performances and fully deserve the credit for their impressive victories against Spain’s top two.
But the limp displays offered by Barcelona and Madrid – both beaten on the same day for the first time since January 4, 2015 – were remarkable in their own right.
A double from Sevilla’s Andre Silva and one from Ben Yedder in the 39th minute were just enough to outdo the champions league holders, while a goal each from El Zhar and Real Madrid’s loanee, Oscar Rodriguez turned around the game after Barcelona through Philippe Countinho had initially taken the lead.
