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.
...
Having been unbeaten for the entire season, Real Madrid have now lost 2 games in the space of 4 days. 
...
Full-Time: Real Madrid 1-2 Celta Vigo
...
90+3' And we are into the final minute of added time and it looks unlikely that Los Blancos will be able to make a come back into the game.
...
90+1' Hernandez goes down in Madrid's half after a wild swing by Morata, who is clearly frustrated.
...
90' There are 3 minutes of added time.
...
Can Real Madrid salvage something from the tie?
...
89' Substitution: Guidetti comes on to replace Wass, who is given a rather nasty send-off by the Real Madrid players who are incensed by him trudging away from the pitch.
...
And Celta with the final throw of the dice and it is Guidetti who is coming on for Wass.
...
87' SUBSTITUTION: Pione Sisto comes on for Bongonda!
...
Madrid are camping in Celta's half but are unable to penetrate the away side's resilient defence. They have less than 10 minutes left to salvage something from the first leg of the quarter final.
...
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.
...
82' Substitution: Sergi Gomez comes on to replace the goalscorer Iago Aspas.
...
Madrid are staring at their second successive defeat. They imploded in the last 10 minutes against Sevilla and the story is somewhat similar today. Testing times for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
...
80' Substitution: Karim Benzema comes on to replace Danilo as Zidane throws the kitchen sink!
...
Karim Benzema is looking to come on as Zidane prepares his final roll of the dice. Can his side avoid a second successive defeat?
...
75' Ramos is a lucky man to stay on the pitch. He is already on a yellow and he catches Aspas on the face while challenging for the ball but the referee does not see it as a bookable offence.
...
72' Substitution: Kovacic comes on to replace Vasquez!
...
The game has suddenly burst to life and this is sensational stuff. The away side are sniffing a victory here and are looking to cause a huge upset.
...
Aspas finds the run of Castro who darts into the box and the left-back lefts the ball over Casilla to give the away side the lead once again. Real Madrid 1-2 Celta Vigo!
...
This is crazy stuff!! 2 goals in less than a minute....
