A Lucas Vázquez Double Seals Copa del Rey Quarter-Final Spot

Real Madrid reached the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, but drew the second leg against lower league opposition for the second round in a row.

Real won the first leg 3-0 against second-tier Numancia, and made 10 changes for Wednesday’s home meeting.

The Whites needed just ten minutes to open the scoring. Carvajal curled in a lovely cross from the right-hand side and Lucas Vázquez arrived at the back post to head home.

The tie was now 4-0 in Real Madrid’s favour and they had further chances to increase the deficit with an Asensio free-kick with 14 on the clock and a Lucas Vázquez effort seven minutes later.

Lucas Vazquez put Madrid in front with a header, but Guillermo levelled from a counter-attack.

Vazquez scored a second from close range before Guillermo equalised again – this time with a header.

The minnows had Dani Calvo sent off late on for two bookings.

Real, who have not won the competition since 2014, also drew 2-2 in the second leg against Fuenlabrada of the third tier in the last round, having won the first game 2-0.

Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Alaves and Leganes are also in the last eight. Barcelona and Celta Vigo, who drew 1-1 in the first game, meet at the Nou Camp on Thursday
