Real Madrid mauled by third division team

Real Madrid's new 'Galactico' era has not started out the season quite as expected, and the struggles continued after losing in humiliating fashion on Tuesday.

Real Madrid lost to third division club Alcorcon, 4-0, in a Copa del Rey match. Alcorcon, which has 400 times less the payroll than los merengues, humbled a less-than-full-strength Real Madrid, but it still defeated a team which started players like Raul, Guti and galactico Karim Benzema.

While the second leg of the Copa del Rey fixture has yet to be played, the thrashing has left Real Madrid fans worried, and manager Manuel Pellegrini with huge concerns.

What do you think of Real Madrid's embarassing loss? Happy to see them fall? Think they should buy all of Alcorcon's players in the winter?
