Real Madrid edged closer to the Spanish Cup exit door Thursday after third division Cadiz appealed their midweek cup defeat because the capital giants had inadvertently fielded a suspended player.In the first leg of their fourth round tie Wednesday Russian international Denis Cheryshev not only started the match but opened the scoring in Madrid's 3-1 win too.But he shouldn't have been on the field as he was due to serve a one-match ban in the cup after picking up three yellow cards whilst on loan at Villarreal last season.Real Madrid director of institutional relations Emilio Butragueno also laid the blame at the Spanish Football Federation and Villarreal for not informing Madrid of the ban.
