Carlo Ancelotti: Saw Real Madrid draw a blank against third tier opposition

Carlo Ancelotti: Saw Real Madrid draw a blank against third tier opposition

Elsewhere, Getafe still have work to do to make the last 16 and Celta Vigo prevailed in an all La Liga affair.

Real Madrid included the likes of Sergio Ramos, Angel Di Maria and Isco in their starting XI, but were unable to break down third tier opposition in the form of Olimpic Xativa as they were held 0-0 on the road.

Carlo Ancelotti's side will now be relying on the result of a second leg at Santiago Bernabeu to ensure that they avoid a major shock.

There were no such struggles for their cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid, as they eased past Sant Andreu 4-0.

The visitors were always in control on Catalan soil, with Raul Garcia firing them in front after just 13 minutes.

Arda Turan bagged a brace (20 & 56) to put them in complete control, before David Villa wrapped up the scoring six minutes from time.

Getafe were also in Catalunya on Saturday, and they required a 38th-minute leveller from Romania international Ciprian Marica to cancel out David Timor's 16th- minute opener and earn them a 1-1 draw.

One goal was all that Celta Vigo required to secure a first leg advantage over Athletic Bilbao, with Santi Mina getting them off to the perfect start with only seven minutes on the clock.

Segunda Liga Recreativo Huelva will hold a narrow advantage over Levante when they head to the home of the top flight outfit, with Hernandez Ruyman netting a dramatic stoppage-time winner to edge them in front.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
