There is not derbi Madrilenian that disappoint and, in the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey, was not the exception. Real Madrid and Athletic of Madrid signed an authentic battle that finish defining in extention after a 'war' of golazos that signed Álvaro Morata and Rodrygo Goes in statutory time. Karim Benzema, the one of always, commanded to his to some new 'semis' thanks to a goal when the ones of the 'Cholo' were with ten.

And it is that, once again, they went out to the air the big defensive lacks of a White House that, between the injuries and the abysmal planning, is seeing them of all the colours in this first month of the 2023. Further of several confined of Vinícius Jr, the most active of the madridistas, to the ones of Ancelotti was missing him a lot of forcefulness in the first-half, something that knew to take advantage of the 'colchoneros'.
The rojiblancos took advantage of of the lagoons of the Madrid in the left band and after a 'jugadón', Álvaro Morata did to cost the law of the ex in Santiago Bernabéu. Koke Took advantage of of the desmarque of Nahuel Molina and filtered a big pass to the back of the defence so that the Argentinian side commanded a pass of the death that hunted the ex madridista in the second stick to push it inside.
The Madrid wanted to answer, but was missing him spark: Valverde tested with a shot from the medialuna that covered Oblak and afterwards, after a fault launched by Toni Kroos, Morata brushed the balloon inside his area and, surpassing the clear of the put esloveno, Militãor, almost on line of goal, commanded his head butt above the stick.

Valverde Was the following in trying it with a finish from out of the area, after a wall with Modric, that left very up, but the clearest arrived before the hour of party with a paradón of Oblak to a good shot with the left-handed of Karim Benzema from the frontal. Savic Avoided that 'Vini' shot in the refuse.
The imprecisions punish (and the Madrid, also)
After the imprecisions of the Madrid in the rival area, the Athletic tried to clear the prompt party but topó with a grandísimo Thibaut Courtois. Soto Degree had signalled a fault in favour of the athletic after a fault of Dani Ceballos, by which asked the second yellow, by an infringement on Lemar in the frontal. Antoine Griezmann was the attendant to effect it, but his shot commanded it to corner the Belgian.
The Athletic had his opportunity of 'kill' the party, did not take advantage of it and the Madrid did not forgive him... With a genialidad of Rodrygo Goes, few minutes after ingresar to the terrain of game. It did with the balloon in zone of three chambers and was leaving, to pleasure and with several cuts, to the rivals 'colchoneros' to finish defining better still with a shot with the outside of his right boot to surpass to Oblak.
Extention of madness in Madrid
The party, without solution in statutory time, left to the extention where the Madrid began dominating and moving the balloon in the area of the rojiblancos.

Nahuel Molina committed a fault, in the side, on the '20' that Soto Degree signalled, but between protests Savic and the Brazilian finish admonished: Two minutes afterwards, the player of the Athletic committed a fault on Camavinga... And it left to the street to leave to his with ten.
And, there, the Madrid did not forgive... With a new traced back in the Bernabéu, that already are more than normal in Chamartín. The balloon had fallen in the area and Vinícius no atinó to finish, but yes did it a Benzema that hunted the refuse to command a powerful shot in the second stick and like this beat to Oblak. Full stop to a history that, again, the ones of Carlo Ancelotti won.
