Alcoyano 1-3 Real Madrid
Real Madrid were successful in winning their round of 32 match against Alcoyano after being beaten by the same team in the round last year’s Copa del Rey.
Well, history didn’t repeat itself after all! With Militao opening the scoring, and the hosts then equalizing, the upset looked on once more, but alas, it wasn’t to be.
Those two Real Madrid goals, both coming from unfortunate deflections, proved the difference, as Los Blanco produced a significantly improved second-half performance to ensure that they maintained their lead until the final whistle, and progress into the next round at Alcoyano’s expense.
Real take the lead!!!’ In swings a Madrid corner, and Militao ghosts in at the front post to head beyond Figueras into an empty net! 1-0 to the away side, but don’t forget that Militao has opened the scoring against Alcoyano before!
Alcoyano equalize!!! Vega races into the box and cuts inside. He beats three Madrid players, before firing past Lunin to make it 1-1 and the stadium has erupted! Lightning may well be striking twice here as the hosts fire themselves right back into
Real re-take the lead!!! An Alcoyano’s counter-attack breaks down and back comes to Madrid, and Hazard tees up Asensio on the edge of the area. His placed finish takes a wicked deflection which leaves Figueras with no chance, as the ball bobbles into the back of the net to make it 2-1 to Los Blancos! A stroke of luck perhaps, but the hosts are still more than capable of salvaging something!
Real make it three!!! Isco is put through on goal by a series of defections and stabs the ball past Figueras, but the Alcoyano keeper got the last touch and so it will go down as an own goal by him! It’s such a disappointing few minutes for the hosts, who have seen two goals come off the back of defections!
