Real Madrid – Osasuna – Played on 05/06/ 2023


The Brazilian Rodrigo led his Real Madrid team to victory (2-1) during the match against Osasuna, this evening, Saturday, at the “La Cartuja” stadium, in the final of the King’s Cup of Spain.

Rodrigo Joyce scored Real Madrid’s two goals in the two minutes (2 and 70), to return the King’s Cup to the arms of the Royal Club, which it has been absent for 9 years since its last title in the season (2013-2014).

On the other hand, Lucas Toro scored Osasuna’s only goal in the 58th minute of the match.

With this victory, Al-Merenji reaps its 20th title in the King’s Cup, compensating its fans for its failure to preserve the “La Liga” title, which has become close to its rival Barcelona.

early target

The match started with early pressure from Real Madrid, which resulted in the first goal with Rodrigo Joyce’s feet in the second minute, after a distinguished individual effort from Vinicius Junior on the left side, and he passed the ball towards his compatriot Rodrigo inside the area, who hit the net.

The response came from Osasuna in the seventh minute, from a corner kick executed by Moncayola inside the area towards Hernandez, who hit a weak header in the arms of Courtois.

And from a direct free kick to Osasuna, the ball reached Toro, who hit a header that passed by the left post of Courtois’ goal in the 15th minute.

Fede Valverde fired a missile at the edge of the area, but it passed over goalkeeper Herrera’s goal in the 21st minute.

Herrera, the goalkeeper of Osasuna, shone in blocking a ground shot from inside the penalty area through Frenchman Karim Benzema, to prevent him from adding the second goal of the Merengue in the 25th minute.
