Real has found a bit of momentum in league play and hopes it will carry over to the cup, its best shot at a trophy this season, while Girona hopes to pull another stunner in a tie that it certainly can win.

Girona, who upset Atletico Madrid to get this far in the tournament, were without top striker Cristhian Stuani, but still managed to strike the first blow in front of 51,000 spectators at the Santiago Bernabeu here on Thursday, reports Efe.

An nearly identical move six minutes later ought to have given Real the lead but Karim Benzema failed to lift the ball over a grateful Iraizoz in goal.

Shuster worked with Marcelo during his spell at Real Madrid and know how Marcelo's body system is whenever the Brazilian defender suffers an injury and he believes he has to be monitored.

Madrid was eliminated in the Copa quarterfinals the last two seasons. "He is a warrior".

Real Madrid looked to be in control at this stage, but allowed Girona in to score a second, with Alex Granell converting a penalty kick of his own following a mindless handball from substitute Marcos Llorente.

Benzema got in on the act on 81 minutes with a close-range finish after connecting with a cross from Vinicius to hand Los Blancos a two-goal lead heading into the second leg.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has asked for clemency for Schellenberg and has called his death penalty "inhumane". He was originally sentenced in 2016 to a 15-year term, but the court delivered the new sentence after reconsidering his case.

This makes it five four wins on the spin for Solari, with his side's form improving.

Marcelo, a mainstay at the Santiago Bernabeu since joining from Fluminense in 2007, has not started a game in his favoured left-back slot since the 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad on January 6, with Sergio Reguilon seemingly now first choice.

Earlier Thursday, Real Betis scored late to draw 1-1 with Espanyol in Barcelona.

It was an open match from the start at RCDE Stadium, with both goalkeepers having to make several hard saves.

Betis had a goal disallowed for offside in the 63rd minute before Antonio Sanabria levelled things up following a quick counter-attack with nine minutes to play.
