Real Madrid are set to take on fourth-division outfit Cacereno for a place in the last-16 of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday.
Los Blancos returned to competitive action after the World Cup break with a 2-0 winner over Real Valladolid in La Liga. Now they will shift their focus to the domestic cup competition, a tournament they have not managed to win since 2013-14. Indeed, they have bagged the Copa del Rey title only twice since 1993 and will be determined to win this edition after a gap of almost a decade.
Meanwhile, Cacereno beat Cordoba and Girona in the first two rounds of the competition to set up a date with the capital-based side. They are currently in the sixth spot in the fourth-division league table and are on a seven-game unbeaten run heading into this fixture.
