Copa del Rey: Real Madrid shocked by losing to CD Alcoyano

Football News

Real Madrid endured a frustrating exit from the Copa del Rey as the Spanish champions fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of third-tier CD Alcoyano, who finished the match with 10 players.

Zinedine Zidane made wholesale changes to his side following last week’s Spanish Supercopa semi-final defeat to Athletic Club, with Andriy Lunin and Victor Chust both delivering first-team debuts.

For most of the first half, Real struggled to get rolling but took the lead on the half-time stroke as Eder Militao got into the box at the end of a risky Marcelo delivery to go home.

There was an excellent chance for Vinicius Junior to put the game beyond doubt, but Jose Juan saved his breakaway shot before Jose Solbes equalized himself with nine minutes remaining, prodding home from a corner at the back post.

The dismissal of Ramon Lopez in extra-time seems to have provided the edge to Real Madrid, but Alcoyano’s 10 men scored a winner when Juanan nipped in at the near post to convert an Ali Diakite cross.

Goals: Militao (45), Solbes (80), Juanan (115)
