Real Madrid win Aggregate 4 - 0

Live Commentary

  • Full-time between Osasuna and Real Madrid, where it's finished 4-0 on aggregate and 2-0 on the night to Carlo Ancelotti's men. A Cristiano Ronaldo striker and Angel Di Maria effort have sealed the Copa del Rey win for the visitors. Thanks for following this play-by-play, be sure to stick around for the report and reaction!
  • 90'
    Three minutes of stoppage-time to see the nine-men of Madrid out...
  • 87'
    Morata is unable to continue with his head injury any longer. He's down on the ground at the moment and is set to be carefully carried off any second now I suspect.
  • 85'
    Yellow Card Roberto Torres
  • 85'
    RED CARD!! Coentrao's stupidly, ridiculously kicked out at an Osasuna attacker and rightly given a second yellow card for his stupidity.
  • 84'
    Yellow/Red Fabio Coentrao
  • 83'
    Casemiro should score! Di Maria whips in a brilliant corner, but Casemiro at the back post fails to convert, heading down into the ground and wide.
  • 81'
    Breakaway! But no dice for Madrid. Di Maria has the ball on the left as it's four-on-four in the hosts' half, but his attempted cross is blocked out for a corner to the Blancos.
  • 80'
    SubstitutionDe las Cuevas Oriol Riera
  • 79'
    Morata has a steaming black eye, now! He's conceded a foul in frustration, high up the pitch in Osasuna's half.
  • 76'
    Bale is pressed well on the left to deny him from breaking away to set up a third Madrid goal. Osasuna have found a little bit more energy, it seems.
  • 73'
    The visitors are still pressing, but they're doing so in bursts. The visitors have accepted their fate and look to have had the effort totally sapped out of them.
  • 71'
    Alvaro Morata's taken a real knock to the face despite having only just come on, landing on the shoulder of an Osasuna player. He's got quite a shiner showing up already!
  • 68'
    SubstitutionJesé Rodríguez Morata
  • 68'
    Some fine dynamism from Madrid. Isco with a fancy turn inside the area to earn a corner with a deflected shot, after Jese's cute chipped cross from the left.
  • 65'
    SubstitutionJoan Oriol Satrústegui
  • 65'
    So, can Gareth Ble make his mark on the tie. There's no pressure on the winger tonight, with Madrid already essentially qualified, so it's prime time to get a goal in the bag to keep his transition to La Liga star on track.
  • 64'
    SubstitutionXabi Alonso Casemiro
  • 63'
    In truth, Ronaldo looked rusty tonight. Bringing him off was the right choice to keep him fresh for the weekend.
  • 62'
    SubstitutionC. Ronaldo Gareth Bale
  • 62'
    Ronaldo's been brought off to a chorus of boos and whistles - the Madrid fans here tonight clearly want to see more of the Ballon d'Or winner!
  • 61'
    SubstitutionÁlvaro Cejudo José García
  • 59'
    Controversy leading up to that goal by the way: Alonso hacked down De Las Cuevas before setting the goalscoring attack into motion and it really should have been an Osasuna free kick. Luckily for Ancelotti and Co., the referee thought otherwise.
  • 55'
    Goal Ángel Di María
    GOAL!! Real Madrid are 2-0 up on the night and 4-0 up on aggregate and surely that's game over? Angel Di Maria strikes the ball into the bottom corner from 15 yards in front of goal from Jese's cross.
  • 54'
    Joan Oriol wins an Osasuna corner on the left wing. The resultant set piece sees Casillas looking very rusty, allowing Cejudo to get in front of him and almost bumble the ball into the back of the net.
  • 51'
    Ronaldo with a poor attempted pass from the left to Jese in the middle then even worse control from Isco on the far right to concede possession.
  • 49'
    Osasuna's Loe launches a shot miles over the crossbar from 30 yards in the hosts' first attempt of the half. Let's hope the next few chances are more accurate!
  • 46'
    We're back under way in Pamplona. Can Osasuna put up a better fight in the second half?
  • Half-time and Real Madrid are sitting comfortably in the lead. Ronaldo has followed up his Ballon d'Or glory on Monday with a goal from a goalkeeping howler midway through the first half, leaving Osasuna 3-0 behind on aggregate in the Copa del Rey last-16 tie. Stick around for second half coverage!
  • 45'
    Roberto Torres chips towards goal from 12 yards but Casillas dives - in slow motion - to his left to smother the soft shot.
  • 44'
    Does Coentrao get a yellow card for playing on after the ball just dribbled out of play around the halfway line? For football's sake, I hope not! He must have been prostesting excessively. Either way, he's in the referee's book.
  • 43'
    Yellow Card Fabio Coentrao
  • 43'
    This time Casillas definitely gets a hand on it! Miguel de las Cuevas cracks an effort on goal and the Madrid skipper tips it behind for a corner.
  • 41'
    Super shot and Real Madrid are fortunate to still have a clean sheet! Cejudo gets a pass from the right, turns inside and curls his shot from his left foot on to Casillas' right upright. Did the Madrid shot-stopper get his fingertips on it? I think not, but it was close.
  • 40'
    I'd like to say Di Maria just went close, but his shot might have gone over if Osasuna's goal was doubled in size.
  • 39'
    Whistles ring around Pamplona as Real Madrid pass it around at the back without pressure. The hosts look tepid and Carlo Ancelotti's men are certainly not buckling.
  • 37'
    Xabi Alonso! The midfielder lashes a left-footed strikes just wide from outside the box. It was very nearly 4-0 on aggregate, there.
  • 36'
    Ronaldo's feeling lucky tonight. He thumps in a shot from around 50 yards, which bounces into Andres Fernandez's hands. The goalkeeper looks furious at the Real Madrid forward for thinking lightning might strike twice!
  • 34'
    Yellow Card Arbeloa
  • 34'
    Alvaro Arbeloa fancies a bit of this rubbish tackling malarkey, getting a deserved yellow card for a kicking down Roberto Torres.
  • 33'
    Alvaro Cejudo steps up to take the 25-yard free kick and curls it a few inches over, dipping on to the roof of the net. Not a bad effort, that. Casillas had his eye on it all the way though.
  • 32'
    Asier Illarramendi concedes a free kick just before the halfway line, then Xabi Alonso hacks down Osasuna striker Acuna. Finally, a chance for the hosts to test Casillas...
  • 31'
    Iker Casillas may as well have brought a seat. The entirety of this game seems to be being played in Osasuna's half.
  • 29'
    Ronaldo weaves and dribbles into the box from the left flank with a number of fancy stepovers, but his shot's straight at Andres Fernandez. This time he is able to stop the ball from bobbling past him!
  • 28'
    Sergio Ramos is chipped through on goal after a corner is unsuccessfully cleared by Osasuna, but he's judged (corectly) to be offside.
  • 26'
    Real Madrid are still in the ascendancy but they're not in a very high gear. A 3-0 aggregate lead is quite handy, I suppose.
  • 24'
    Replays make that goal funnier and funnier every time. The poor goalkeeper is going to get so much stick for that goal. It's not often Real Madrid score via the opposition shot-stopper's backside though...
  • 21'
    Goal C. Ronaldo
    GOAL!! What a brilliant goalkeeping howler, but Cristiano Ronaldo won't care! The Real Madrid attacker celebrates his Ballon d'Or win with a corking strike from 40 yards. However, it's hit straight at Andres Fernandez and the Osasuna goalkeeper bafflingly chooses to punch the ball, but he punches the dipping ball downwards and between his legs. It bounces up against his crotch then bobbles over the line! 1-0 Real Madrid.
  • 21'
    Another foul on Ronaldo, this time from Raoul Cedric Loe.
  • 20'
    Yellow Card Raoul Cédric Loe
  • 20'
    Andres Fernandez with a flaccid punch which does not clear the final fifth of the pitch. Real Madrid don't take advantage of the extended possession though.
  • 18'
    Again, Isco in the centre of the action. This time he's the one legging it to the byline, but his efforts are to no avail as he cannot keep it in play (it's close though).
  • 16'
    Isco with a shocking through-ball for Angel Di Maria on the right flank. The Argentine doesn't even bother to chase it to the byline, as he knows it will be pointless.
  • 14'
    A sloppy start from Real Madrid. When you go into a game with a 2-0 lead, it can affect your focus and desire, I guess. Luckily for them, Osasuna haven't looked too great either.
  • 11'
    Nevermind goals, it didn't take long for Osasuna to get their first booking: Oriol Riera getting a yellow card for a foul on Ronaldo.
  • 9'
    Yellow Card Oier
  • 9'
    Osasuna really do need to score the first goal this evening. Concede first, and they're left with the ominous task of scoring four goals...
  • 8'
    Yellow Card Oriol Riera
  • 6'
    The Blancos, playing in their white kit, are yet to really test the home defence. Cristiano Ronaldo, fresh off his Ballon d'Or success on Monday, and Isco have linked up well at times though.
  • 4'
    Real Madrid are two goals to the good from the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu. Can they use those strikes to their advantage or are we in for a shock result?
  • 1'
    And we're off at Pamplona!
  • Real Madrid don't half have a decent bench, too! Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Diego Lopez, Alvaro Morata...
  • Real Madrid: Casillas; Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao; Illarramendi, Alonso, Isco; Di Maria, Ronaldo, Jese.
  • Osasuna: Andres, Oier, Flano, Loties, Joan Oriol, Cejudo, Punal, Raoul Loe, De las Cuevas, Roberto Torres, Acuna.
  • Let's have a look at the line-ups, shall we...
