Real Madrid qualified for the King’s Cup quarter-finals, after beating Elche 2-1 in the round of 16, during a match that extended to overtime, at the Manuel Martinez Valero stadium.
Real Madrid knew its way to the quarter-finals after an exciting match in its extra time, and negative in its original time.
The original time of the match ended in a goalless draw between Real Madrid and Elche, and the royal club, with all its elements, was unable to reach the homeowner’s net.
Matters became complicated for Real Madrid in the 102nd minute after the direct expulsion of the Brazilian Marcelo.
What made the matter even more difficult was that Elche managed to score the lead in the 103rd minute through Gonzalo Verdo.
But Isco was in the season in the 108th minute and equalized for Real Madrid by Dani Ceballos.
