It was a pleasure to bring you all the updates from the Santiago Bernabeu. This is Shaurya Vineet signing off for the night. In case of any comments, suggestions or feedback, feel free to get in touch with me on Twitter @ShauryaVIneet. Until then good bye and take care!
It was an enthralling game of football which just burst to life in the second half and then it was all end to end. Two goals in the span of 1-minute turned the tie on its head but Celta held on to take the lead into the second leg.
Credit must be given to Eduardo Berizzo for organizing his side in such a manner so as to stifle the La Liga giants. They have pulled off an epic upset at the Bernabeu and have all to play for at home. Can they knock the favourites out of the competition? We will have to wait and find out.
Real Madrid will have to look back and examine what has suddenly gone so wrong for them. They were on a 40-match unbeaten streak and are now struggling to win games. They have to be careful of Barcelona and Sevilla in the league and a draw in the second leg of the Copa del Rey would mean they are knocked out of the competition.
This is Celta Vigo's only second win over Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey and their first since 1940. The away side have the advantage ahead of the second leg and with the home support behind them they will surely fancy their chances.
83' WHAT A MISS!! Marcelo curls the ball inside the box for Morata who heads the ball down and the keeper gets down brilliantly to parry the effort but only into the feet of Benzema. The Frenchman has an open goal in front of him but he blazes over from around 10 yards out. That miss could prove costly for the home side.
