Alcoyano 2-1 Madrid: Los Blancos knocked out of the Copa del Rey in extra-time



Copa calamity as Madrid stunned by third-tier Alcoyano.

Madrid are eliminated from the Copa del Rey by 10-man Alcoyano of the Segunda B! Militao put LaLiga’s champions ahead on the stroke of half-time but Solbes equalised for the third-tier hosts with 10 minutes of regulation time remaining. It looked like Alcoyano would have to hold on for penalties after Ramon was shown a second yellow card, but Juanan’s goal following a swift break sent them into the last 16 at the expense of Zidane’s men

Zidane will need to rally the troops and get Madrid back on track against Deportivo Alaves on Saturday, while Alcoyano have a home game against Orihuela to look forward to on Sunday. It’s a truly amazing accomplishment from Parras’ men, who saw goalkeeper Jose Juan make 10 saves and Solbes make important contributions at both ends – the second-half equaliser and a block at the death in extra time.
