Copa Del Rey: Madrid win first game without Lopetegui


Santiago Solari’s reign as Real Madrid’s caretaker coach began on a good note with a 4-0 win against Melilla in the Copa del Rey clash.


Solari, who played for the club between 2000-2005, watched on as Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo goals downed the Segunda B outfit, with the second leg at the Bernabeu still to come.

Madrid dispensed of former Spain manager Julen Lopetegui after a humiliating El Clasico defeat at the weekend, against Barcelona.

It was a good way for Solari to ease the pressure at the Bernabeu.

The second leg is not until the first week of December, but much bigger tests await Solari, beginning with a home league game with Valladolid on Saturday, which precedes a run of four away games.
