The ball is rolling again, without any personnel changes on either side it goes into the second round.



Kick-off 2nd half



Mid-term conclusion:
In what was largely an uneventful game, both teams went into the break 0-0. Elche was the dominant team for a long time and should have taken the lead in the tenth minute through Carrillo, but he was denied by the aluminum from two meters. As a result, Elche remained cheeky and had more opportunities, especially through Carrillo. Real only woke up in the last ten minutes, but Camavinga and Rodrygo missed from a promising position.



Real is now taking control of the game and is also becoming dangerous offensively, the royals seem to have woken up.



Super solo by Marcelo, who beats three opponents on the left and then has his eye on Rodrygo in the penalty area. But he doesn’t hit the ball properly from seven meters, at the far post Vazquez narrowly misses the accidental shot, there was more in it.



Now a good opportunity for Real. Again it is a one-two from Marcelo with Vinícius Júnior who initiates the scene, the latter then goes through on the left and puts the ball in the backcourt, where Camavinga fails from 16 meters, central position to Werner.



Lucas Pérez falls to the ground in the penalty area and demands a penalty. There is a small contact, but this takes place outside the penalty area. Pérez only falls two meters after contact and, correctly, is not awarded a penalty.



The game ripples in the last few minutes. Elche is very good defensively, Real can’t think of anything.



A one-two from Marcelo with Vinícius Júnior gives Real some space on the left. Marcelo’s cross is then cleared for a corner. After this, several crosses sail into the penalty area, but Elche can always clear it up without any problems.



Furthermore, it remains a disappointing performance of the guests from Madrid. The Royals are not offensive yet, a lead for Elche would be well deserved.



Next good opportunity for moose! After a nice relay pass, Mojica has plenty of room to cross on the left again. His cross finds Carrillo’s head. Lunin safely parries his central header touchdown from new meters.



Los Blancos continue without a dangerous finish. Kroos attempt from around 20 meters, central position, is more of a return than a real test for Werner.



Mojica has plenty of time and space to cross on the left, in the middle Nacho clears Carrillo with a header. After the corner that followed, Carrillo was relatively free to head the ball from seven meters, but missed the goal by around half a meter.



So far, Real has been working a lot with diagonal balls. After such a change of game, Valverde tried it from a distance, but his shot was blocked.



Real is now trying to get some control of the game, but Elche keeps countering dangerously and has so far remained more determined.



Aluminum from Elche! Marcelo totally misjudges a long ball, so Josan is free on the right in the penalty area, puts the ball great in the middle, where Carrillo doesn’t manage to get the ball into the goal from two meters, it fails on the crossbar. What a chance!



Kroos found Jović on the left of the penalty area with a good chipball across the entire defense, who got stuck but was awarded Real’s first corner. But this is ineffective.



Diego González underestimated a long ball from Nacho and almost put Vinícius Júnior into play. In the end, the defender just got it clarified on the right edge of the penalty area. They must not allow themselves such carelessness too often.



Quiet start to the game, both teams have so far neutralized themselves in midfield.



After a minute’s silence for late Real legend Francisco Gento, referee Figueroa Vazquez releases the ball, Real kick-off.


The teams enter the lawn. In a few minutes the ball will be rolling here in the Manuel Martinez Valero Stadium in Elche.


The two teams last met in the league in October. A brace from Vinícius Júnior handed Los Blancos a 2-1 win. Leaders Madrid are definitely the favorites in the duel against the 15th in the league today, who celebrated an important victory in the fight to stay up in the league at the weekend.


Elche coach Sempere also changes the goalkeeper, Werner starts instead of Édgar Badía (bench). Likewise, Fidel, Josan, Raúl Guti, Palacios and Chetauya start for Barragán, Mascarell (neither in the squad) and Tete Morente, Verdu and Pere Milla.


Coach Carlo Ancelotti rotates his eleven vigorously. Only Alaba, Kroos, Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior and Vazquez remain in the team from the last game in the Spanish Supercup against Bilbao. Lunin is in goal today, Nacho, Marcelo, Valverde, Jović and Camavinga also start. Stars like Benzema, Courtois or Militão are not even in the squad today.


In the last round, both teams struggled for a long time. Los Blancos beat third division side Alcoyano 3-1 but only managed to decide the game in their favor in the last 15 minutes. Elche also won 2-1 against second division team Amleria in the last quarter of an hour.


Happy Thursday evening and a warm welcome to the Copa del Rey Round of 16. Elche CF host Real Madrid at their home arena. Kick-off is at 19:00.
