Real Madrid footballers were sensationally eliminated in the sixteenth quarterfinals of the Spanish Cup with a third league player. On the CD, Alcoyano lost on Wednesday 1: 2 after extra time. Juanan Casanova made a superb strike after 115 minutes with a shot straight in front of the goal after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second and warded it off for a corner. Five minutes before, Ramon Lopez had seen a red card after the second yellow card for an intervention on Casemira.
Real did not start in the strongest basic line-up - Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, or Toni Kroos jumped into the game during the match. As expected, the guests had the game and shooting advantage during the whole match and from the 45th minute they led after the header of Eder Milita. With 80 minutes played, Jose Solbes nearly put the visitors another one up as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot passed just over the bar. Among the heroes was also the goalkeeper Jose Juan Figueras, who eliminated many chances of Real. Real Sociedad San Sebastian advanced to the round of 16 of the cup, succeeding 2: 0 on the ground of the third league Cordoba.
