Copa del Rey: Real Madrid vs. Alcorcon


Real Madrid will be looking to redeem itself when Alcorcon visits the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this evening for the second leg of their fourth round Copa del Rey tie.

Two weeks ago Alcorcon, a club from the outskirts of Madrid who play in the third division of Spanish football, inflicted a humiliating hammering of Los Blancos.

Now, coach Manuel Pellegrini is set to include Kaka and Gonzalo Higuain in a bid to overturn a four goal deficit against the Segunda B minnows.

However, Karim Benzema will be rested because according to Pellegrini, he has played several consecutive matches. Sergio Ramos will miss out because of suspension.

Kaka believes Madrid can make up for their embarrassing defeat by staging a remarkable comeback.

The match kicks-off at 20:00 CET.

UPDATE: Los Blancos crashed out of the Copa del Rey after losing 4-1 on aggregate to Alcorcon on Tuesday night.
