With a lot of luck: Real escapes another embarrassment in the Koyano

Real Madrid reached the fourth round of the King’s Cup with luck. In the third division Alcoyano, Los Blancos had a tough time and eventually made it through with two twisting strokes.

Strange as it seemed: Real Madrid had the opportunity to take revenge on CD Alcoyano. The third division team, as it stands now, won 2-1 after extra time against Los Blancos in January (also in the third round of the Copa del Rey) last year. Of course, on Wednesday, as it was almost a year ago, it was an obligatory task for Los Blancos, who lost 1-0 in Getafe after 15 official matches unbeaten on Sunday.

Real traveled to third class without a number of permanent employees. Coach Carlos Ancelotti gave regular goalkeeper Courtois a break and Lunin played for him. Modric, Mendy and Benzema are sitting a bit sick, and Jovic remains in isolation. Vinicius Jr missed again, Carvajal and Bale were hit. However, Ancelotti sent a famous team to the race.

Alquiano is very brave – Real Madrid are progressing undeservedly

But this team had a very difficult time against Alcoyano. The third division started lightly – and posed problems for Los Blancos. And the Real Lunin goalkeeper was subjected to a challenge after three minutes against Dani Vega, after Camavinga saved the next corner (4). The hosts were the better team at the start, and Escudero’s shot fell on the side nets (15th place). The performance of the royal team in the first 45 minutes was completely disappointing, in the attacking attack the ideas and spirit were missing, the absence of Benzema and Vinicius was noticeable. However, the guests led to the break, because goalkeeper Juan miscalculated after a corner kick and headed Eder Militao with a single header (39). It wasn’t worth it, but Los Blancos didn’t care.

The dream goal of Dani Vega – Real Madrid with a lot of absurdity

In the second half, Real controlled the match a little better, at least Los Blancos did not allow anything defensively. There was almost nothing to go forward, which is why Alaba tried twice from a distance (51, 64). From Alcoyano nothing came of attack until the 66th minute: the seemingly fast Dani Vega hit the right, stopped inside and put the ball like a dream into the top left. The crowd was upset and already feeling the next sensation against the great Real Madrid.

It shouldn’t happen this time around, as Los Blancos scored two more devious goals. Substitute Asensio’s shot deflected unsustainably for goalkeeper Juan (76.). A little later, one of the Alcoyano players shot the other until Isco appeared alone in front of Juan. The striker put the ball into the goalkeeper’s goal, then it hit the goalkeeper, Juan kicked the ball into his own net (78). Two very bitter goals that were recognized from the outsider’s point of view, robbed all hopes of sensation. With this double punch, the match was of course decided and Real Madrid moved into the fourth round.
