Real Madrid recorded a 9-1 aggregate win over Cornella as goals from James, Isco and Jesse helped los mirengues to a 5 nil win after a 4-1 win a week ago.
Real opted to rest Ramos, Ronaldo, Kroos and Benzema and were almost embarrassed when Cornella won a penalty early on. Boniquet however stepped up an sent the ball over the bar. Real Madrid controlled the game from that point and took the lead almost immediately when James Rodriguez latched onto Isco’s through ball and chipped the ball over Alberto to make it 1-0. Isco made it 2-0 in the 3oth minute with a chip of his own and three minutes later, James added another goal, his second of the night as he curled the ball home from just inside the box. Real Madrid slowed the pace of the game down in the second half and in the 60th minute, Javier Hernandez’s shot went in off Borja Lopez before Jesse came off the bench to make his first appearance for Real Madrid since injuring his knee in March and round off the victory in style in with a low finish in the 77th minute.
