A year later, Real Madrid took revenge with Alcoyano after being eliminated during the last edition of the Copa del Rey. Those of Carlo Ancelotti took the victory and the pass to the round of 16 despite not displaying their best game in Alcoy. Militao’s goal, Asensio’s and José Juan’s last own goal completed all three of Madrid’s goals. On the part of the local team, Dani Vega made a real goal that put the meringues in trouble.
Same sensations and same scorer as last edition
The match began as the match ended in 2021. A doubtful white team, whipped by the ghosts of the past, was subdued by an Alcoyano clothed closely by the El Collao audience. Lunin came very close to earning a problem due to his nerves, but the Ukrainian settled into the green as the minutes passed. The forward of the Alicante team, made up of Mourad, Escudero and Javi Antón, was very active during the first thirty minutes.
However, when Madrid reflected worse sensations, he managed to hit through a set piece. José Juan, the black beast of the whites last year, failed in the exit of a corner and Militao placed the first in the electronic with five minutes of the end of the first half. The Brazilian defender has already scored in the elimination against Alcoyano himself in 2021.
Mariano starred in the bad news of the night for Real Madrid, and when just three minutes had elapsed, Mariano put his hand to his thigh in a race and had to be replaced as a result of those annoyances. The passage through the changing rooms did not change anything, and it is that Alcoyano continued trying to dominate and reach the merengue goal.
Dani Vega made one of the goals of the Cup
The Alcoyano midfielder overflowed on the right wing and made an incredible goal to cause euphoria in El Collao. Dani Vega came from the second row, cut leaving Casemiro and Militao seated and crossing the ball crashing it against Lunin’s meshes. A deserved goal for an Alcoyano who was deserving more.
The key changes at Real Madrid
Isco, Asensio and Kroos were the stimulants chosen by Ancelotti to try to put an end to this ‘déjà vu’. Precisely, Asensio, playing today as a false 9, teamed up with Rodrygo and Hazard to score the 1-2 and silence the Alcoy fans. Fortune allied with the whites, since the ball previously bounced off the back of Alicante before sneaking into José Juan’s nets.
With no time to think about Asensio’s goal, Isco appeared. After a failure of the Alcoyano defense, Isco tried to beat José Juan by high, and in the fall of the ball, the ball collided with the goalkeeper’s heel, ending its journey into the goal, an own goal that closed the scoring and it served for Ancelotti to take a breath.
With the 1-3 final, Real Madrid got through to the round of 16 despite the great performance of the Alcoy team. The team led by Vicente Parras was able to say goodbye to their fans in Copa del Rey through the front door.
