Iran News - - SPORTS -

MADRID (Dis­patches) - Real Madrid cruised into the Copa del Rey last 16 on Thurs­day with a 6-1 rout of third-tier Melilla to progress 10-1 on ag­gre­gate in a com­pe­ti­tion they have won 19 times.

Last month’s 4-0 first leg win in the Span­ish en­clave on the north African coast got San­ti­ago So­lari’s reign as care­taker coach off to a pos­i­tive start.

Now in full time charge So­lari rang the changes for this match up against mod­est Melilla, with the Ar­gen­tine rest­ing the likes of Thibaut Cour­tois, newly crowned Bal­lon d’Or win­ner Luka Mo­dric, Gareth Bale, Ser­gio Ramos and Karim Ben­zema.

Real can­tered into the next round with a first half dou­ble from Marco Asen­sio and a sec­ond half brace from Isco, with Javi Sanchez and Vini­cius Junior com­plet­ing the drub­bing.
