Real Madrid will look to confirm their progression into the Copa Del Rey Round of 16 when they host Fuenlabrada at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.
Real Madrid turn their attention back to the Copa Del Rey, a tournament they will be desperately hoping to flourish in, on Tuesday. Los Blancos play hosts to Fuenlabrada at Santiago Bernabeu in the second leg of their Round of 32 tie, and they will be hoping to progress into the next round with a positive display of football.
The hosts seem to be going through a slight upturn in form, having gone on a four-game unbeaten run following their loss to Tottenham earlier this month. The 3-2 win over Malaga last weekend showed that there is still some work to be done, specifically in defence.
Fuenlabrada, on the other hand, have been in imperious form this campaign so far, having lost just two games all season, one of which was the defeat in the first leg. The Madrid-based club are top of the Segunda B Division, and are the favourites for promotion into the second tier of Spanish football.
The first leg, played last month, ended in a comfortable 2-0 win for Real Madrid, although Los Blancos needed two penalties to prevail in the game. Ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides, The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter.
