Watch: Spanish 3rd division team's brilliant reaction to drawing Real Madrid in cup

More often than not, Real Madrid don't give their opponents much to smile about. The La Liga giants - with Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Ball in their ranks - are usually big favourites to win games against Spanish opponents.

As such, you might think any team drawn against Los Blancos in the cup would be a little worried about seeing their chances of success hitting the buffers.

However, that wasn't the case with lowly Deportiva Leonesa who showed the magic of the cup is alive and well in Spain in a video showing their reaction to being matched up against Real in the Copa del Ray.

Leonesa currently finds themselves in the third tear of Spanish football and, as such, they don't often get to test themselves against the world's best.

So, having made their way into the draw for the last 16 of Spain's premier cup competition, it was no surprise that television crews were in attendance as the club sat to watch the draw take place.

Cue absolute pandemonium when Madrid's name came out of the hat...

Due to the nature of the Copa del Ray, the lower league players won't just get one chance to pit their wits against the likes of Ronaldo, Bale and co.

First, Leonesa will welcome Zinedine Zidane's team to their place on October 25. Then, in what could very well be a once in a lifetime opportunity, they will travel to the Santiago Bernabeu in November.

Of course, Real will be heavy favourites for the two-leg tie.

However, for the third division side's players - especially that bloke in the brown jacket - they might very well have already just secured their own version of a cup final.
