Real Madrid played another winning game in the King’s Cup last 16 first leg yesterday at the Bernabeu Stadium.
In a second minute attack, Luka Modrik curled a shot just wide of the goal, unsettling the opposition.
Karim Benzema scored the first goal in minute 19, putting in a free kick from Luka Modric.
Cristiano Ronaldo failed to get the ball in the goal, shooting wide a few times in the match; but he set up Jese Rodriguez for Real Madrid’s second goal in the 59th minute.
If Real Madrid goes through after the second leg, they will meet Espanyol or Alcorcon in the quarter finals. Although Alcorcorn are a second division side, they surprised Real in 2009 by knocking them out at the last 32 stage. On Wednesday, Alcorcon beat Espanyol.
