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.
