Prediction : Real Madrid has had trouble with a lot of teams, but it should have no trouble with this team from the third division. Expect Real to win in a match that really won’t teach us much about Solari’s squad and how it will look against better competition. Real Madrid 5, Melilla 0.
Real Madrid travel to north Africa on Wednesday amid one of their worst runs of form in recent history to take on third-tier side Melilla in the Copa del Rey.They are heavy favourites to prevail in their round-of-32 first leg, but a victory against Melilla will do little to ease the pressure on the side.It is vital for Real that they do win, though, and comfortably, as even a laboured victory would be used as further proof of their recent demise.
Given their current struggles the prospect of the Madrid giants winning a fourth consecutive UEFA Champions League seems far fetched.As such, the Copa del Rey could be their best chance to salvage some silverware from what already looks to be a disappointing season.
