Watching the Real Zaragoza vs Mallorca match. Hoping it's at least somewhat entertaining.

Ibiza beating Barcelona 1-0 with 35 minutes left 👀 could've been 2-0 but they hit the post.

Barcelona very nearly went out, Real had it really tough, then Atlético actually went out. 

This is why changing it from 2 legs to 1 was a good idea. It's made it more appealing and open to shocks. 

Even with 2 legs we saw shocks, I mean Real themselves have been eliminated by Real Union and Alcorcón over the last 10 or so years. But it's open to even more shocks now that you have no second leg to make a comeback in.

It means less games over the season aswell.

Barcelona 5-0 Leganes. It could have been a lot more to be fair and it must have been something like 85%-15% possession. You can certainly see what Quique wants from his team, it's about them now adjusting to what he's asking.

His style of play naturally suits these players, but after being used to playing and training in a different manner for a while, they need to get used to it.

There is a lot to do yet, but I think you could see positive signs tonight. Semedo also has to play at right back and Lenglet has to start also, as he's clearly the club's best defender these days. He's not been as good this season as last, but under a new manager, it's a fresh start for literally every player. In saying that Barcelona's home form has actually been near perfect and the biggest downfall is actually the performances in away fixtures.  This is what needs to be improved on the most.,

I knew Mirandes would win that one. They are always wanting to cause a scene!

Fair play to them. Lower league Spanish clubs certainly have the heart as none of them have been easy pickings for any side thus far.

It also took Athletic to beat Tenerife on pens after a 3-3 thriller. It's been a great copa and while I believe that quality is down in Spain right now, the actual games still produce plenty of excitement.

Barcelona are going out this round I think. You'd fancy Athletic playing at San Mames in a 1 game tie in the Copa del Rey against anyone. They love this competition.

I also think Mirandés wiñl beat Villarreal at home aswell. 

Real Madrid should beat Real Sociedad at home and the other game is anyone's.

Mirandes could realistically get through that and it would be a wonderful achievement for them.

Was worried that the CdR would go a bit shit and the drop down to single legged games would be the death knell of the competition. In fact, it seems to have been a breath of fresh air.

If you remember, they reached the semi finals a few years ago and not so long before that, the quarters, so they must be doing something right.

The true definition of a "giant killer". Got to love them.

I knew they would win mate. They were the favourites in that tie.

I've got to say though, that it surprises me that Villarreal have never done anything in this competition. They have never won it before, yet clubs like Getafe have!

Martin Odegaard scores for Real Sociedad! Real Madrid 0-1 Real Sociedad!

James Rodriquez is starting for Real Madrid against Real Sociedad today. While Modric, Varane, Isco, Mendy, Rodrygo, Jovic and Courtois are all on the bench. Brahim Diaz is also starting for Real Madrid. Real Madrid do have a lot of strength in depth, but I don't think they are playing the type of starting lineup that they would usually play in the Champions League or in a key La Liga match.

Real Sociedad are up a goal at half-time, but really it was mainly all Real Madrid in that first half. Sociedad had some chances of their own, but it was Madrid who were the ones controlling possession and creating more dangerous chances. 

Can Sociedad survive the expected Real Madrid destructive attack in the second half? We shall wait and see.

Isak puts the ball in the back of the net for Sociedad and he thought he had scored Sociedad's 2nd goal, but his goal is disallowed after VAR is viewed. So Sociedad are still only the one goal up, but a bit of a let off there for Real Madrid.

3 nil now for Sociedad! What a nightmare the start of the 2nd half has been for Real Madrid. Isak scores again, the ex-Dortmund forward is on fire!

Real Madrid through Marcelo in the 59th minute and they pull a goal back. There's still another half an hour for them to find at least two more goals, but that will be a tough task against this well organised Real Sociedad team. The score is currently Real Madrid 1-3 Real Sociedad

This young Real Sociedad team is very interesting and could go on to become similar to the one we saw from a few years back. Hopefully they don't get dismantled and ripped apart, which happens far too much in this sport nowadays.

Yes, Mikel Merino another ex-Dortmund player scores to make it 4-1 to Sociedad now, what a thumping Real Madrid are getting today. 

They are an entertaining side to watch are Sociedad, but Odegaard will probably return to Real Madrid soon, I doubt they will let Sociedad extend his loan deal.

Vinicious Junior pulls another goal back for Real Madrid, it's now 2-4 to Real Sociedad with another 10 minutes of the match to play.
