It was a big disaster for Real Madrid. Yesterday, the team lost a chance to compete for the Copa Del Rey cup.
Line-up against Alcoyano
Zinedine Zidane decided to rotate the squad for yesterday’s game. Keep in mind that Zidane gave a chance to rest to the whole squad for two days. Los Blancos was in Pamplona for more than three days. Due to snowy weather, Real Madrid could not leave Pamplona after the game against Osasuna. That’s why royal club’s players have not seen families for 5 days. After the rest, Zidane’s team started preparations for Copa Del Rey. Zidane rotated the squad and played with a very different line-up against Alcoyane.
Chust (academy player) had a debut along with Lunin. Both players had a really good match yesterday but they could not give a win to Real Madrid. Odriozola was playing on the right wing and Marcelo on the left. Casemiro was still unstoppable in the midfield. Valverde was helping on the right side and Isco on the left side. Lucas was attacking from the right wing and Vinicius from the left. Mariano Diaz was the only striker in the match replacing Karim Benzema.
Come-back from Alcoyano
It was a big surprise when Alcoyano decided to make a big come-back in their history. Real Madrid scored a goal in the first half. After the pass from Marcelo, Militao scored a goal. He gave a lead to Real Madrid and the team was leading until the end of the match. Alcoyano’s players were thinking differently and it was visible. After the pass from Lopez, Solbes scored a goal and equalized the game. In the extra time, Real Madrid got help from Hazard, Benzema, Kroos and Asensio and all in vain. Casanova scored in extra time and Alcoyano is in the next round of Copa Del Rey.
