FT | Full time! Real Madrid draw 2-2 on the night, but they have booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey courtesy of a 5-2 aggregate success.

'90+3 | RED CARD | Calvo is sent off for the visitors for pulling Isco's shirt!

'85 | Into the final few minutes and both sides are showing plenty of bite here. The final score here means little in the grand scheme of things, so they might as well go for it. Neither wants to settle for a draw here.

'82 | GOAL! | Real Madrid - Numancia 2-2. Guillermo! Numancia equalise again! Sensational from Guillermo, the second of the night for the substitute, as he jumps in front of a static Nacho to guide a brilliant header off the far post and in, on the end of Saul's inch-perfect cross!

'80 | Somehow it stays out! Dangerous attacking play from Numancia as a low cross into the centre creates havoc for the Real Madrid defence, but somehow the ball is bundled inches wide of the far post amidst a crowd of bodies attacking that delivery! 

'73 | Great chance! Tidy interplay from the visitors in attack as Markel, only just on, links up well with Guillermo in the penalty area, but an improvised back-heel from the latter is rolled tamely into Casilla's hands.

'65 | Lovely build-up play from the hosts as the ball is eventually worked across the penalty area to Isco, who cuts in on his right and tries his luck, but sends an effort straight into the waiting arms of the keeper.

'59 | GOAL! | Real Madrid - Numancia 2-1. Vazquez! An expertly worked goal from the hosts who restore their lead! Asensio bursts into space down the left and floats in a terrific cross for Mayoral at the far post. The striker hangs in the air and heads it back across into the path of Lucas Vazquez, who smashes an acrobatic finish into the ceiling of the goal!

'56 | Close! A pull-back from the left flank is deflected into the path of Lucas, who does well to control before turning and firing at goal, but his strike lifts inches over!

'49 | Energetic start to the second half from both sides, each posing a decent threat at goal. Asensio nearly gets on the end of a cross at the near post to head home, before Larrea lifts a strike just over at the other end.

'46 | We are back underway in the second half!

HT | Lucas Vazquez's opener saw Real Madrid cash in on their early dominance, but the hosts took their foot off the pedal and were punished by substitute Guillermo Fernandez's equaliser at the stroke of half-time. Everything still to play for in this match, though the tie is essentially decided with Real Madrid 4-1 up on aggregate.

'45+1 | GOAL! | Real Madrid - Numancia 1-1. Guillermo! A moment for Numancia to cherish! Mateu makes a lovely run down the left and is played through into space, before unselfishly sending a sublime delivery across the face of goal for Guillermo, on the pitch for less than five minutes, who produces a cool first-time finish!

'37 | A long ball over the top is brought down superbly by Higinio, who only has one defender to beat, but Vallejo does very well to deny the striker passage through into the penalty area. That was still one of Numancia's brighter attacking moments in this first half.

'30 | The tempo is really sputtering out as we reach the half-hour mark. Real Madrid are content keeping the ball in midfield, forcing Numancia to up their press, hoping to lure them out of position, but the visitors are holding firm.

'23 | Patient building here from Real Madrid as they dominate possession, in no rush to force the issue. They have this tie in the bag and have no need to pick up the tempo.

'15 | Lovely, direct running from Asensio who takes on defenders, eventually winning a free-kick just to the right of the penalty area. It's him who takes the subsequent set-piece as well, bending a cross behind the defence, but Munir is able to collect.

'9 | GOAL! | Real Madrid - Numancia 1-0. Vazquez! There’s the opener! Far too easy for Real Madrid, who open up a 4-0 lead on aggregate to put this tie to bed. Carvajal found space on the right and picked out a tidy cross for Vazquez, who beats the offside trap and is left unmarked at the far post to bounce a header beyond Munir.
