Real Madrid Clinches 20th Copa del Rey Title Despite Osasuna’s Best Efforts
Ahead of Saturday’s final, a large number of Osasuna fans traveled to Seville and painted the city red in anticipation of their team’s victory. However, things started poorly for them on the field. Despite making five changes to the side that lost at Real Sociedad, Real Madrid returned Vinicius Jr to the starting XI. He proved to be a constant threat down the left, assisting Rodrygo in converting the opening goal.
Although Karim Benzema almost made things worse for Osasuna, Jagoba Arrasate’s team began to improve and had a chance to equalize one minute later. Unfortunately, Abde Ezzalzouli missed the target. However, after halftime, Torro scored against his former club with a controlled finish from outside the area which sent the red half of the stadium into delirium.
But Madrid was always a threat. They regained their lead when Rodrygo scored after Kroos’ shot deflected off Garcia. The play briefly stopped due to a loose pyrotechnic where Osasuna fans were seated, but Madrid held on and won.
With Barcelona seemingly set to claim the La Liga title, Madrid will celebrate before focusing on the Champions League. The holders aim to have Luka Modric back from a hamstring injury for the first leg against City at Bernabeu.
