Real madrid drew Melilla for the first round of the Copa del Rey, which will be played on October 31st and December 5th. The first leg will be played at Melilla and the return one at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Some reserves like Vinicius, Vallejo, Mariano, Marcos Llorente or Reguilon will have the opportunity to play this tie, but they should take these two games very seriously as Los Blancos already got knocked out of the domestic tournament fairly soon last season.

Melilla are leading the Group 4 of the Segunda División B with six wins, one draw and one loss so far.

“It will be a very tough match because they will have all the support from their fans there and they will want to complete a good game. We will have to play very well to get a good result,” said spokesman Emilio Butragueño.

“This competition is a big party, every match is different and that creates a very special atmosphere. It will be a very important match for them but also for us. We will do our best to reach the Final,” concluded Butragueño.
