Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have been knocked out of the Spanish Copa del Rey for the first time since 2010.

Naija News understands that the two Spanish giant football clubs will be missing the competition’s final for a long time.

Real Madrid were dumped out of the quarter-final after losing 3-4 at home to Real Sociedad in a hugely entertaining game.

While, FC Barcelona’s hopes of reaching a seventh successive Copa del Rey final ended at the same quarter-final stage with a 0-1 defeat by Athletic Bilbao.

The tight contest was decided in the third minute of stoppage time when Spanish forward Inaki Williams headed past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi wasted a good late chance when he fired at the legs of Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Unai Simon.

The two surprise results have come a day after second-tier side Mirandes defeated Villarreal 4-2.
