Real Madrid visited Espanyol for the first leg of the Copa del Rey as they were able to come out with a convincing 0-1 win on the night.

This post is a very basic recap since I was not able to watch most of the game due to some problems with the channel. So, this will only be including the starting lineup, the scorers, and the next game that Real Madrid will be playing in La Liga.

Starting Lineup:

Carlo Ancelotti left nothing to chance as he named a very strong starting lineup on the night. The starting lineup consisted of:

Iker Casillas [C], Alvaro Arlbeloa, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Asier Illarramendi, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Angel Di Maria, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid –

The Next Match:

Real Madrid will be playing against Granada during the next match of La Liga as they aim to keep their title hopes alive with only one point separating them from first place.
