Against the team that already eliminated it last season in this phase of the domestic competition, Real Madrid went ahead on the scoreboard against Alcoyano (in the third category of Spanish football), with a header from the Brazilian Éder Militao (38 ′). The Alicante team did not give up and managed to equalize the actions in the 65th minute with a great goal from Daniel Vega (65 ‘).
Unlike a year ago, when Alcoyano forced extra time to sentence the tie in extra time, Real Madrid was not surprised and took the pass with two lucky goals from two players who started on the bench: Marco Asensio (75 ′) e Isco (77 ′, although the one who finally pushed the ball into the net was goalkeeper José Juan).
Marco Asensio, with the luck of a rebound, put Real Madrid up (2-1) against Alcoyano. The merengue managed to unlock the match against the locals near the end, in the round of 32 clash of the Copa del Rey.
Very dirty play, but it didn’t matter for Isco, who stretched the lead over Alcoyano in the round of 32 from the El Collao Stadium (Alcoy). Specify that this was Real Madrid’s first victory of the year, after 2022 began with a defeat by LaLiga against Getafe.
