Real Madrid have been thrown out of the Spanish Cup after fielding an ineligible player in their tie against third-tier side Cadiz Wednesday, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) confirmed Friday.The federation's competition committee judge ruled that the player was "ineligible ... so the match is resolved in favor of Cadiz".He also slapped Real Madrid with a fine of 6,001 euros ($6,520).In 2001, Benitez was in charge of Valencia when they were thrown out of the same competition for fielding four non-EU players when only three were permitted.
