Match Report

Isco offered a timely reminder of his quality to head coach Santiago Solari with a brace in Real Madrid's professional 6-1 win over Melilla in the Copa del Rey.

It meant a 10-1 aggregate triumph over their third-tier opponents to progress to the last 16, with Marco Asensio's quickfire double after the half-hour getting Madrid up and running.

Asensio then crafted a maiden senior strike for rookie centre-back Javi Sanchez, with Isco – making his first start under Solari – netting brilliantly in the 47th minute.

Vinicius Junior got in on the act and Isco's second came after Yacine Qasmi converted a consolation penalty for the visitors.

Match Events

33'GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 UD Melilla (Asensio)

GOOOALLL!! Madrid 1-0 Melilla! Poor defending from the visitors, as Asensio is given 40 yards of space to run into before slotting the ball past Moreno. That goal came moments after Mariano skied a shot from a similar range when teed up by Isco.

35'GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 UD Melilla (Asensio)

GOOOOALLL!! Madrid 2-0 Melilla! Just like that, the hosts have themselves a second goal. An unmarked Asensio doubles his tally by firing home from 10 yards, but this was all about the work of Vinicius out wide.

39'GOAL! Real Madrid 3-0 UD Melilla (Sanchez)

GOOOOALLLL!! Madrid 3-0 Melilla! This could get rather embarassing for the Segunda Division side - they now trail by three goals on the day and seven goals on aggregate. Asensio floats the ball into the box and young defender Sanchez turns it past Moreno with a first-time finish off the underside crossbar.

47'GOAL! Real Madrid 4-0 UD Melilla (Isco)

GOOOOAALLL! Madrid 4-0 Melilla! Unbelievable technique from Isco, who picks out the top corner of the opposition net with a wonderful strike. Madrid pick up from where they left off in the first half.

55' Vinicius misses a golden chance!

IT SHOULD BE FIVE! This is almost too easy for Vinicius, who is clean through on goal with just Moreno to beat. The youngster fails to get the better of the Melilla keeper, though, and he sends the rebound into the side-netting from a tight angle.

75'GOAL! Real Madrid 5-0 UD Melilla (Vinicius)

GOOOALLL!! Madrid 5-0 Melilla! Here is the goal that Vinicius has been desperate for. The Brazilian teen weaves past a couple of opposition players and fires past Moreno at the second attempt after his initial shot is saved. 

81' Penalty Goal! Real Madrid 5-1 UD Melilla (Qasmi)

GOOOOALLLL!! Madrid 5-1 Melilla! Qasmi, who won the penalty with his positive run, makes no mistake from 12 yards as he buries the penalty to Navas's right-hand side.

81' Goal! Real Madrid 6-1 UD Melilla (Isco)

GOOOAAAALLL!! Madrid 6-1 Melilla! Isco adds to his stunning strike at the start of this second half with a goal of similar quality towards the end of it. After being picked out by Garcia, the Spanish attacker sets himself up perfectly to blast past Moreno from 10 yards.
