It's Real Madrid with a 3-1 win against city rivals, Atletico Madrid. To the semifinals of the 2023 Copa del Rey they go and rightly so.
Merengues move on to the Copa del Rey semi finals, while Atleti will be left to lick their wounds and reflect on what could have been.
The first warning sign came when the other Brazilian starlet, Rodrygo, leveled the score with an outrageous solo run.
Indeed, it came as no surprise when Balon d'Or winner, Karim Benzema, slotted home the calmest of finishes. Indeed, by the time Vinicius Jr. contributed a classy third goal, the visiting side was spent and the semi final spot was secure.
once again, Madrid showed why it's never a good idea to count them out.
