Real Madrid clashed heads with Cacereno at the Príncipe Felipe Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to win and progress into the next round of the Copa del Rey. Los Blancos made a slow start to the game and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men were slightly better in the second 45 minutes and scored the only goal of the game in the 69th minute when Rodrygo scored a superb goal. The match ended with Los Blancos earning a narrow 1-0 win on the road.
