We saw a nail-biting match at Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid could not win the game against Real Sociedad. The team from San Sebastian could eliminate Los Blancos from Copa Del Rey.
Before the match, Zinedine Zidane said that Real Madrid would play against Sociedad as a final. As it seems, Zidane was right because the match at Bernabeu was the final match for Real Madrid in the current Copa Del Rey.
Zinedine Zidane has not included Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, and Casemiro into the squad. Casemiro has the flu and could not work out for the last two days. Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale are healthy and fit for matches, but Zidane has not included them in the squad.
1st half of the match
It was interesting to see rotations from Zidane. French coach decided to change the three foremost defenders. Dani Carvajal, Varane, and Mendy were not playing. At the same time, Zidane gave a chance to Nacho, Militao, and Marcelo. Unfortunately to Real Madrid fans, the team has conceded four goals because of terrible defensive performance. It was visible that Marcelo and Nacho could not defend well, and Militao was a disaster in the center.
Real Sociedad won the first half thanks to the goal of Martin Odegaard. Norwegian player has scored a beautiful goal but has not celebrated. He is still the player of Los Blancos, and the youngster respects his actual team very much.
2nd half of the match
Real Sociedad scored two quick goals in the second half. Youngster forward, Isak scored two more goals and gave three goals to lead the guest club.
The late drama started in the 59th minute when Brazilian defender scored the goal. Marcelo got the ball from Brahim Diaz and scored a very admirable goal. Real Sociedad went another goal, and it was easy for Merino to score.
Real Madrid players believed in themselves in the last ten minutes. Unfortunately, the last ten minutes were not enough for Los Blancos to come-back. The team could score the second goal on the 80th minute and third on the 93rd minute. It was not enough to come-back in the match. Overall, Real Sociedad easily eliminated Los Blancos from Copa Del Rey.
