Chronicle. Real Madrid, humiliated and eliminated from the Copa del Rey by Alcoyano
Reactions. Zidane calms down: "It's not a shame, we're not going to go crazy"
Toni Kroos, Fede Valverde, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema ... Zinedine Zidane took out all his arsenal for extra time against Alcoyano, a Second B team that even played ten minutes of overtime with one man less, but it was not enough for whites.
Casanova, in 115, culminated a historic milestone for the club at Estadio El Collao.
A 2-1 legend.
The debacle of Real Madrid in the round of 32 of this Copa del Rey joins the list of great white failures in the KO competition.
Toledo - Real Madrid: 2000-2001 season
On December 13, 2000, a Madrid that had just won its eighth European Cup fell at the home of Toledo, recently relegated from Second to Second B, in the thirty-second finals of the Cup. It was the first year that the tournament It was played as a single party and the group led by Vicente del Bosque suffered.
Fifteen minutes later they were losing 2-0 despite having players of the quality and hierarchy of Morientes, Savio (who scored the team's only goal), Solari or Fernando Hierro in the eleven.
They did not play, yes, fundamental players like Raúl, Figo, Guti or Makélélé.
2-1 and eliminated at the Salto del Caballo Stadium.
Real Unión de Irún: 2006-2007 season
Six years later, in 2006, the Federation recovered the double game so that the big teams could go as far as possible in the competition.
The eliminations of Barcelona against Figueres, Novelda and Gramanet, for example, were left behind.
But the Cup, special like herself, continued to reserve moments to remember.
In 2008-2009, Madrid faced Real Unión de Irún in the round of 32.
As he had the return leg at the Bernabéu, Schuster's men got carried away in the first leg and fell in the Basque Country 3-2.
In the eleven, young people like Marcelo, Higuaín or Drenthe and veterans like Guti, Saviola, Heinze or Míchel Salgado.
A consistent team that failed to win.
A few days later, and thinking that the result was easily removable, the whites were surprised by the Real Unión and were eliminated from the competition.
Schuster, in what would be the final stretch of his career on the merengue bench, lined up Raúl, Gago, Sneijder and Van der Vaart.
But not like that.
The captain scored three goals but Madrid could only win 4-3.
Alcorcón - Real Madrid: 2009-2010 season
With the memory of the elimination against Real Unión de Irún still in memory, Real Madrid appeared at the Santo Domingo Stadium to face Alcorcón, a Segunda B team, in the round of 32.
It was October 27, 2009.
Manuel Pellegrini, the white coach, did not trust his rivals and gave the title to Benzema, Raúl, Guti, Van der Vaart and Granero to try to solve the match as soon as possible and not leave everything for the return like the previous year.
But it was not like that.
Borja Pérez on two occasions, Arbeloa (own goal) and Ernesto Gómez completed one of the great historical humiliations, if not the most, suffered by Real Madrid: 4-0.
In the second leg, with Kaka and Van Nistelrooy in the starting eleven, the white club could only win 1-0 (Van der Vaart) against an Alcorcón who defended their move to the next round until the end.
