Real Madrid beat Elche-Copa Del Rey – Ten-man Real Madrid came from a goal down to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey beating a wasteful Elche side in extra-time after facing an almighty scare. Real Madrid looked to be heading out of the Copa del Rey at an early stage once more until their substitutes’ rescue act at Elche. Eden Hazard was Real Madrid’s unlikely Copa del Rey matchwinner as the 10-man LaLiga leaders rallied to a 2-1 win at Elche in extra time.

Scorers: Verdú 103′; Isco 108′, Hazard 115′. Madrid have lifted the Copa only twice this century and looked highly unlikely to improve that record when Marcelo was sent off and Gonzalo Verdu capitalised from the subsequent free-kick in the 103rd minute.

Real Madrid beat Elche: Copa Del Rey –The visitors really should’ve found themselves behind inside the opening 10 minutes when Elche striker Guido Carrillo produced one of the misses of the season so far. Lucás Pérez’s pass across the six-yard box was turned on to the bar with the goal gaping by the former Southampton striker.

Carrillo was then close to giving the hosts the lead again, this time turning a header at goal from inside the area which was well saved by Madrid’s stand-in goalkeeper Andriy Lunin. Real’s best chance of the first half came in the closing minutes when Marcelo wriggled into the box before setting up Rodrygo but the Brazilian’s shot flashed wide.

Marcelo then had the first opening of the second 45 minutes when his left-footed shot from 20 yards out flew wide of the far post. Carlo Ancelotti’s side then struggled to break down a stubborn home defence without the movement of Karim Benzema and creativity of Luka Modrić.

The Real head coach had to turn to Modrić as well as Casemiro from the bench with 20 minutes to go and within minutes the latter stung the palms of Axel Werner from long range. Isco’s introduction helped them gain more ground but it wasn’t enough to break the deadlock and to extra time it went.

Marcelo was then given a red card after bringing Tete Morente down when he was the last man. From the resulting free-kick Gonzalo Verdú’s shot hit the wall before his rebounded effort deflected off Casemiro and wrong-footed Lunin landing in the back of the net.

Within five minutes, Madrid had equalised with Isco turning Dani Ceballos’ goal-bound effort over the line past a helpless Werner. And it was down to another substitute to complete the turnaround with Eden Hazard rounding Werner after David Alaba had played him through and turning the ball home from a tight angle to book Real’s place in the last eight.
