Real Madrid vs Melilla: What Scolari said after Copa del Rey match

In the UEFA Champions League, he took the field for only 17 minutes against Viktoria Plzen, and was dropped out of the squad for the Roma clash in the continental elite club tourney.

The Spain global doesn't see eye to eye with new manager Santiago Solari and has been left out of Los Blancos' starting lineup in each of the Argentine's seven matches in charge at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Marco Asensio opened the scoring after the half hour, setting in motion a flurry of three goals in six minutes.

I am thrilled for Isco, for his two goals and it is a shame about the other one that the goalkeeper kept out.

Isco and Vinicius Junior added two more before Melilla, a tiny Spanish autonomous enclave in north Africa, scored through striker Yacine Qasmi's 81st-minute penalty. "I'm happy for him and for Asensio too, who set up two more goals and almost a third".

Real Madrid beat Spain's third-string team by 4-0 in the first leg and they defeated them again at Santiago Bernabeu by 6-1 on Thursday.

"There's no time to think about it".

At time of writing, Real are four goals to the good (8-0 on aggregate) against their tiny Segunda Division B opponents with an hour or so played.

However, Solari moved swiftly to keep feet firmly on the ground with league games against Huesca and Rayo Vallecano to come either side of CSKA Moscow's Champions League trip to Madrid before he and his players head for the United Arab Emirates later this month.

"I was delighted with the debuts of [Alvaro] Fidalgo, Francisco Garcia and the goal from Javi Sanchez".
