Real Madrid supporters were left fuming by their side's performance as they were torn apart by rivals Atletico in their International Champions Cup match in New York on Friday.

Madrid fielded arguably their strongest team for the game, with new signings Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic involved along with the likes of Luka Modric, Isco and Sergio Ramos.

But a remarkable match saw Atletico race into an amazing 5-0 lead at half-time, which included a hat-trick for Diego Costa and a first goal for the club for Joao Felix.

Madrid were shocking at the back, with some fans calling for the game to be stopped because they were so poor.

Although Madrid did manage to get on the scoresheet three times after the break, the final result of 7-3 was seen as a humiliation for many supporters, and some have big worries for the season ahead.

There were even calls by some fans for manager Zinedine Zidane to quit after the game.

"One Twitter user wrote: "When will #ZidaneOut start trending? He is sending Bale and Ceballos and Rodriguez away but keeping Nacho and Lucas. Maybe he isn't good enough for this club."

Another added, "Zidane will be found out this season- doesn't have Ronaldo or Bale (looking like) to save him."

And one fan summed it up by writing: "One of the worst days to be a Real Madrid fan. It hurts me that I denied myself sleep to watch this at midnight."

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:
