Real Madrid have been rejected twice in less than 24 hours on their appeal against disqualification from the Copa del Rey for fielding suspended Denis Cheryshev against Cadiz.
The Spanish Football Federation appeals committee rejected the first appeal on Thursday, claiming that “every club is responsible for checking whether their players are eligible to play.”
Los Blancos then announced they would take their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAD) and stated they were positive “the final resolution will be favourable.”
However, it only took a few hours for the TAD to reject Real’s request for a precautionary suspension of their expulsion. This means that for now Los Blancos remain disqualified, but the TAD is going to study the case more in depth.
Thus, there is still a last hope for Los Blancos, but it seems highly unlikely that their final appeal will be successful. As a matter of fact, Osasuna were kicked out last season for a similar offence.
