Nine-Man Madrid Advance

Posted: Feb. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

A nine-man Real Madrid team qualified to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey as two of their men found red cards. Goal Keeper Iker Casillas was injured and forced to be substituted. Despite all of that, striker Benzema was able to find the back of the net and rescue the team in a 1-1 draw.

Real Madrid progressed to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey despite having two men red-carded and goalkeeper Iker Casillas forced off by injury in a 1-1 draw againstValencia on Wednesday evening.

Jose Mourinho's side thumped Los Che 5-0 at the Mestalla at the weekend in the league and while there was plenty of action again tonight, it was for different reasons.

Casillas' finger injury on 18 minutes, after he appeared to suffer a kick to his hand, began a memorable night in which the result was all but confirmed by Karim Benzema's 44th-minute goal.

That gave Madrid a 3-0 advantage in the tie although they made life hard for themselves after the break
