Santiago Solari praises out of favour Isco after Copa del Rey double

Navas must decide his own future says Solari

Navas must decide his own future says Solari

The Spain playmaker has been confined to bench duty since Solari replaced Julen Lopetegui in the hotseat and was dropped from Madrid's matchday squad for last week's 2-0 Champions League victory at Roma.

After winning the first leg 4-0 in what feels like an eternity ago, Real Madrid are now in the act of welling and truly seeing off Melilla in the second instalment of their Copa Del Rey round of 32 tie.

Marco Asensio opened the scoring after the half hour, setting in motion a flurry of three goals in six minutes.

The second half saw Llorente and Carvajal taken off in place of Ceballos and Garcia, and Ceballos had an instant impact, setting up the night's captain, who smashed a attractive effort into the top corner in very Isco-esque manner to make it four.

Madrid hit back nearly instantly, as Fran Garcia set up Isco, who scored a similar goal to his first one to make it 6-1 on the night, and rounded off a humiliating 10-1 aggregate victory. I got very sad because he failed to score before the break what could have been a great goal. "That's what we all want to see out on the field against Melilla".

"That division is very underestimated and there are teams that play very good football".

Los Blancos have struggled in 2018/19 and now sit in fifth place, though they are starting to close the gap on the leaders following a crucial victory over Valencia.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that after the humiliating 3-0 loss to Eibar at the weekend, Real Madrid fans have sent an SOS message to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
