Days after he fell to Getafe by the minimum in the Spanish La Liga, Real Madrid returned to winning ways by defeating Alcoyano 1-3 in corresponding match for the 16th final of the Copa del Rey.

Madrid with many substitutes and players with little regularity like Hazard or Lunin they jumped onto the pitch looking to erase the image of the last Cup in which Alcoyano himself took them out of the race by beating them 2-1 in overtime.

The fears of the meringues seemed to come true when the opponent’s attack was present from the first minutes of the game with actions in which the goalkeeper had to intervene Lunin or a shot of Andy that crashed into the side of the goal.

When it seemed that halftime would be the best card for both teams, Madrid’s goal appeared in the first shot on target for the Whites. A corner taken by Rodrygo ended with a header into the back of Militao’s nets for the transitional 1-0 (39 ′).

The similarities with last season’s game in which they fell after going ahead with a goal from the Brazilian center-back made Ancelotti move the bench and gave him entry to the start of the second half. Kroos already Isco to control half the court, but his plan faltered when Vega Cintias marked the equality at 66 ′.
