Real Madrid Atletico Madrid – Just recap the match of both the teams.

First talk about the Real Madrid

Joselu’s penalty kick, following a foul on Brahim Diaz, gave Real Madrid the lead in the 54th minute. Real Madrid easily advanced to the Copa del Rey round of 16 on Saturday with a 3-1 victory over Arandina. Atletico Madrid advanced with a 3-1 victory over third-tier Lugo thanks to goals in the second half from Memphis Depay and Angel Correa’s opening goal.

The hosts, Arandina, of the fourth tier, rose to the task of taking on the reigning champions, who struggled to get past goalkeeper Adrian Alvarez and missed many first-half opportunities.

After Brahim Diaz was fouled, Real Madrid took the lead with a penalty kick from Joselu in the 54th minute. A minute later, the visitors increased their lead.

Despite their struggles with injuries, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has produced some strong performances.

One standout performance came from Arda Guller, who made his playing debut after overcoming many ailments sustained during his summer transfer.

Real Madrid’s victory was cemented by Brazilian attacker Rodrygo in stoppage time, although Arandina responded with an own goal from Nacho.

It’s time about Atletico Madrid

Atletico seemed to be in for a smooth game as well, taking the lead away at Lugo after two minutes when Angel Correa easily slotted home from Javi Galan’s left-wing pass.

Then, in the 39th minute, Lugo put up a strong show as Leandro Antonetti took advantage of his opponents’ careless defending to equalize.

However, a through pass from Koke gave Atletico the lead again in the 66th minute, and eight minutes later, Dutch international Depay sealed the victory with his second of the game.

At a soggy Mendizorroza Stadium, La Liga’s humble Alaves overcame Real Betis 1-0 thanks to a strike from Carlos Benavidez in the 57th minute, eliminating the 2022 cup winners.

It was Betis’ first cup defeat in regular time since 2019.

Girona defeated Elche 2-0 to advance, with Daley Blind scoring off a corner kick by Portu in the first half. Blind later helped Yan Couto expand the lead in the second half.

Luis Milla of Getafe scored in the 87th minute to give the visitors a hard-fought 1-0 victory against second-tier Espanyol, advancing them to the round of sixteen. Oscar Valentin and Isi Palazon of Rayo Vayecano needed extra time to defeat Huesca 2-0.

Spanish Cup action continues with 10 games scheduled for Sunday, including Barcelona’s clash with fourth-tier Barbastro. On January 17, the round of 16 matches will take place.
