With FC Barcelona inflicting their biggest Copa del Rey win over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in 93 years on Wednesday, Real skipper Sergio Ramos was spotted sending his teammates a defiant message after Luis Suarez completed his brace.

Los Blancos went into the game with a slight advantage, having scored an away goal in the first leg, a 1-1 stalemate at the Camp Nou at the beginning of February.
Following Barca striker Suarez' audacious Panenka penalty in the 73rd minute of the game, Real skipper, Ramos – who is the active player with the most red cards in El Clasico history – reportedly attempted to keep the floodgates from opening further by telling his teammates to not allow Barca to score any more goals.
"Let's not let them score six," the defender told his colleagues, according to Marca.
To pin-point the last time Real suffered a humiliating scoreline of such proportions in a Copa del Rey Clasico, one would have to go back as far as 1926, when Barca ran out 5-1 victors at Real's old stadium, the old Estadio Chamartin.
The only other time the Blaugrana have netted more than three goals against the Madrid club in the cup was in a 4-2 win in the 1959 semi-finals.
Los Blancos' last defeat to Barcelona in the cup came in 2012, when the Catalans were 2-1 winners in the quarter-finals.
