Real Madrid's Copa del Rey match against Leganés on Wednesday drew the "worst attendance" of the season at the Santiago Bernabéu with a crowd of 44,231. Real Madrid won the match 3-0. The club is currently in fifth place in La Liga and trails first-place Barcelona by 10 points (MARCA, 1/9).

The Spanish Footballers' Association (AFE) said that "at no time" did it request the exclusion of Spanish second division side Reus for the rest of the season. The AFE said in a statement that it is "awaiting the resolution from La Liga's judge of Social Discipline regarding the disciplinary investigation of Reus" (EFE, 1/10).
