Real Advance To Last Eight Despite Thrilling Draw

Copa del Rey

Result: Real Madrid 2-2 Numancia (Real won 5-2 on aggregate)

Date: 10 January 2018

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid advanced to the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey after defeating Numancia 5-2 on aggregate.

Los Blancos came into the first leg on the back of a 3-0 victory in the first leg.

Lucas Vazquez sent Zinedine Zidane's charges ahead in the 10th minute with a header following a good cross from Daniel Carvajal.

The home side were playing at a high intensity after 20 minutes and looked more likely to extend their lead.

Unai Elgezabal had a chance to equalise for the visitors in the 31st minute, but he could not direct his header on target from close range.

Guillermo Fernandez equalised for Numancia on the stroke of halftime with a cool first time finish inside the box after being sent through on goal to make it 1-1 on the night and 4-1 on aggregate.

Los Blancos were more positive coming out for the second half and threw bodies up front in their attacks.

Vazquez completed his brace on the hour-mark with an acrobatic finish into the roof of the net following a cross from Borja Mayoral, 2-1 and 5-1 on aggregate.

With 10 minutes remaining in the half, Zidane brought in Casemiro for Mayoral as they looked to see out the rest of the clash.

However, Fernandez also got his second goal of the match eight minutes before time with a header at the far post following a cross from Saul, making it 2-2 and 5-2 on aggregate.

Numancia did finish the game with 10 men after Dani Calvo was sent off for picking up a second yellow card, but the score remained 2-2 as the referee brought an end to the game.
