Real Madrid Edge Past Giantkillers Alcoyano In Copa Del Rey

Posted by

For the second year in a row, Alcoyano made Real Madrid fight hard in the Copa del Rey last 32, but this time the Spanish giants prevailed.

Last year, Alcoyano, a third-tier team, upset Real with a 2-1 extra-time victory.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team took the lead thanks to Eder Militao’s header, but Alcoyano were leveled thanks to Dani Vega’s magnificent solo strike.

Marco Asensio scored after an assist from Eden Hazard, and Juan Jose’s 42-year-old own goal secured the victory.

Barcelona needed a comeback to beat third-tier Linares 2-1 earlier in the day.
