Real Madrid 1-2 Celta Vigo - As it happened

Re-live Real Madrid's 1-2 Copa del Rey defeat to Celta Vigo, looking back at the live updates of the match as it happened.

After going 40 games without defeat, Real Madrid have now lost their last two matches. In six crazy second half-minutes, Celta took the lead through Aspas, Madrid equalised with a goal from Marcelo and then Celta scored a winner a minute later with a goal from Jonny.

It's been a crazy six minutes in this one. Celta took the lead, Marcelo equalised and then Jonny then calmly slotted past Casilla to put the away side ahead again.

Marcelo cancels out Aspas opener

Celta head a cross out to Marcelo, who lashes a powerful volley past Alvarez.

GOAL: Real Madrid 1-1 Celta Vigo (Marcelo, 69 mins)

Marcelo fails to clear a Celta cross from the left and can only flick the ball to Aspas. The former Liverpool forward has time and scores past Casilla with a cool finish.

Vazquez fires over

Madrid have another chance and this time Vazquez fires over once again.

Morata fires just over

The striker has Madrid's best chance of the game, firing his effort just over the Celta bar.

Madrid make a change

Marco Asensio comes off with what looks like a neck injury and is replaced by Morata.

Ronaldo shoots from distance

Ronaldo has an effort from outside the area, but the shot is weak and straight at goalkeeper Alvarez.

Second half underway

Aspas kicks off for Celta Vigo and we're underway once again.

HALF-TIME: Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

Zidane's side have edged the first 45 minutes, but Celta have defended well and have had a couple of chances of their own. It's probably a fair scoreline on the balance of play.

Yellow card for Hernandez

Another Celta player goes into the book for a foul on Sergio Ramos.

Yellow card for Diaz

The Celta midfielder goes into to the book for a foul just inside the Madrid half.

Casemiro fires wide from distance

The Brazilian shoots from long range and has Alvarez diving to his right, but fortunately for the Celta 'keeper, the ball flies wide.

Ronaldo appeals for penalty

Ronaldo goes down as he believes he is pulled back, but the referee gets this one right and doesn't blow for a penalty.

Ronaldo finds the net... but is offside

Modric picks out Ronaldo with a nice cross. He finds the net but is clearly offside. Right decision.

Ronaldo misses good opportunity

The Madrid star scuffs a left-footed effort when well placed in the box. Good work from Ramos to find the forward.

Kroos tries his luck

The German has an effort from just oustide the area, but Alvarez is well positioned and holds his attempt at the second time of asking.

Chelo Diaz tests Casilla

The Celta man receives the ball 25 yards from goal after a good counter-attack from the away side. He strikes his shot well, but it's fairly easy for Casilla to hold.

Ramos almost opens the scoring

The Madrid defender meets a cross from the right, but heads the ball onto his own arm and it's saved easily in the end by Alvarez.

Vazquez effort is a weak one

The Madrid forward tries to test Alvarez, but his shot is low, weak and easy to save.

Ronaldo can't convert Kroos cross

The German plays a floated cross to the far post for Ronaldo, but the angle is tight for the Portuguese forward and he can only head against the outside of the post.

Aspas wastes a good opportunity

The Celta striker beats the offside trap and can cross for Wass who is completely unmarked in the Madrid box, but he blasts the cross way too far and high.

First attempt for Celta

Theo cuts in from the left, but scuffs his shot wide.

Yellow card for Ramos

The Madrid captain brings down Aspas down the right and receives a yellow card for the challenge.

Marcelo threatens down the left

The full-back goes on a marauding run, but his cross is cleared after he reaches the byline.

Early pressure from Madrid

Lucas Vazquez tries to work some space for himself at the edge of the box. He shoots, but his shot is deflected and comfortably saved.

Match underway

Ronaldo kicks off for Real Madrid and we're underway.

Vazquez, Ronaldo and Asensio lead the line for Madrid

Zidane has opted to play Ronaldo down the middle as the centre-forward and will be flanked by Vazquez and Asensio. 'Los Blancos' are not short of options on the bench either, with Benzema and Morata waiting in the wings if needed.

Celta Vigo line-up with the in-form ex-Liverpool striker Iago Aspas up front and appear to have packed the midfield in order to try to nulify the threat of Real Madrid.
