Spanish Third Division Side’s Reaction To Drawing Real Madrid In The Copa Del Rey Is Everything
Having pulled off one of the bigger upsets in the 2016 Copa del Rey Third Round by defeating second division side Albacete 2-1, Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa have now drawn Spanish giants Real Madrid in the round of 32.
Cultural Leonesa plays in the Segunda Division B, the third tier of Spanish football. Based in Leon in the north of Spain, the club has only experienced life in La Liga on one occasion since the club's inception in 1929, that being the 1955-56 season.
The only reason you might’ve heard of Cultural Leonesa is because of a kit they released during the 2014-15 season which looked like a tuxedo.
To say you can see just how much this means to the club’s players would be a hackneyed understatement, this is the game of their lives.
