Real Madrid avoid cup shock repeat against third-tier Aloycano as late goals seal victory
A nervous evening for Real Madrid but they got there in the end. Thanks for following the game with us.
ALCOYANO NOT GI|VING UP
They're still trying until the final whistle but it is a futile task now.
HARSH FOR THE HOME SIDE
They have had so much of the game and before the Real second they looked more like getting the winner.
José Juan Figueras
GOAL FOR REAL!
Isco was only just on the pitch and a defensive clearance rebounded to put him through and he pushed the ball past the keeper before the two collided but the ball deflected off Juan and into the net.
ISCO COMES ON FOR HAZARD
GOAL FOR REAL!
Asensio hits home a deflected effort after Hazard squared the ball to him on the edge of the box.
CAMAVINGA WINS HEADER FROM CORNER
But his effort is gathered by the Alcoyano stopper.
PRIMI IS BOOKED
For an earlier foul on Camavinga.
RODRYGO TURNS IN FROM THE LEFT FLANK
But his shot is blocked.
GOAL FOR ALCOYANO!
And what a goal. Dani Vega ran down the right flank and cut inside before firing an unstoppable left-footed effort inside the far top corner.
Raul, Juli and Garcia come on for Blanco, Escudero and Mirando.
ANDY GETS TO THE BY-LINE
But he can only cut the ball into the arms of Lunin.
CASANOVA WITH A LOVE TAP
Albeit with an elbow in a jumping contest and he gets a yellow card for it.
ALABA SHOOTS FROM LONG RANGE
It had a lot of power but a couple of yards wide of the target.
BOOKING FOR CARBONELL
A good run from Militao and after nutmegging the defender he was brought down.
ASENSIO COMES ON FOR MARIANO
Bad luck in the rare start for the striker as he looked to have pulled a hamstring.
ALCOYANO GET US BACK UNDERWAY...
End of 1st Half
A half dominated by Alcoyano but Real Madrid's one shot on target is enough to have them in front.
CAMAVINGA TRIES A SHOT FROM JUST INSIDE THE BOX
But the Frenchman is crowded by a couple of defenders and it flies wide.
