Alcoy eliminates Real Madrid from the Copa del Rey (2-1)


Big surprise in Collao. Alcoy has just eliminated Real Madrid from the Copa del Rey. A goal by Juanan in the 115th minute of the match gave the classification to the Second B team, which despite playing without an audience in its stadium deservedly surpassed the reigning league champions. The Alicante team will be in the draw for the round of 16 this Friday.

Those of Zidane, who have played with several starters and finished with Benzema, Kroos or Casemiro on the grass, have advanced on the scoreboard with a goal from Militao. But Alcoià overcame the game thanks to a goal by Solbes in the 80th minute and Juanan in extra time, with the added merit of playing with one less player due to the expulsion of Ramon López from the 110th minute.

The blow is very hard for Madrid, who last week lost the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Club in the semifinals. Now, the whites are left without the Cup, a trophy that Zidane has never won as a Madrid coach and that the team has not won since 2014, when he lifted it against Gerardo Martino’s Barça.
