Real Madrid fielded an almost unrecognisable team and struggled into the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on Wednesday (Jan 10) after a 2-2 draw against second division Numancia.

Real Madrid reached the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, but drew the second leg against lower league opposition for the second round in a row. Real won the first leg 3-0 against second-tier Numancia, and made 10 changes for Wednesday's home meeting.

Lucas Vazquez put Madrid in front with a header, but Guillermo levelled from a counter-attack. Vazquez scored a second from close range before Guillermo equalised again - this time with a header.

The minnows had Dani Calvo sent off late on for two bookings.
