Isco, Asensio shine in Real chance

Santiago Solari keen for Real Madrid to not look too far ahead

The return leg of the 2018/19 Copa del Rey Round of 32 tie between Real Madrid and Melilla will kick off at the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid on Thursday 6 December 2018 at the local time of 16:15 hours CET.

Odriozola started in his natural right-back slot, while Carvajal was asked to play as an inverted fullback on the left flank.

Both Isco and Asensio, part of Spain's faltering World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, had not started any of first seven games under new club manager Santiago Solari but were included in a highly-rotated clash against the third-tier side.

Vinicius took on 3 Melilla defenders, and made it 5 with 15 minutes to go after Asensio laid the ball onto him.

"I'm very happy for Isco, I was very sorry that he missed the one played in the first half, because it would have been a great goal", he told reporters.

Javi Sanchez added a blemish in otherwise a ideal evening by fouling Quasmi in his own box at the 80th minute, and the man himself stepped up and stroked his effort past a wrong-footed Keylor Navas.

Isco and Vinicius Junior added two more before Melilla, a tiny Spanish autonomous enclave in north Africa, scored through striker Yacine Qasmi's 81st-minute penalty.

A satisfying afternoon for Real Madrid was not quite as rewarding for Mariano Diaz, who had to be withdrawn with a muscular injury. Here are the talking points from the game.

Superb. What a lovely, lovely player.

Solari gave little away in terms of team selection, but Castilla players Javi Sanchez, Fidalgo and Cristo have been included in his squad.
