Rodrygo Real Madrid 2022-23
Real Madrid begin their Copa del Rey campaign as they hope to end a nine-year drought in the competition.

Real Madrid visit Cacereño in the Copa del Rey Round of 32 tonight as they hope to win their first Spanish Cup since 2014.

Cacereño play in Segunda División RFEF - the fourth tier of Spanish football. Real Madrid should be the heavyweight favourites to win this, but lower tier teams have managed to oust Los Blancos in Copa del Rey in recent years.

Cacereño will take heart from their 2-1 win over Girona in the Round of 64. Moreover, facing Real Madrid will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for them, which will motivate to punch way, way above their weight.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, registered a 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid in their first game after the league resumed. They last lifted the Copa del Rey in 2014, under Carlo Ancelotti.

Cacereño vs Real Madrid confirmed lineups
