Zidane's reserves draw 2-2 with second-tier Numancia, progressing after 3-0 first-leg winImage Credit: APReal Madrid's Borja Mayoral shoots.Madrid: Real Madrid fielded an almost unrecognisable team and struggled into the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on Wednesday after a 2-2 draw against second division Numancia.Already 3-0 ahead from the first leg, coach Zinedine Zidane could afford to rest his superstars with one eye on La Liga, where they are 16 points behind Barcelona, and the Champions League last 16 with a clash against Paris Saint-Germain next month.However, they were far from convincing at the Bernabeu.Lucas Vazquez scored both of Real’s goals on Wednesday after the 11th and 59th minutes.But on both occasions, their modest visitors fought back thanks to a brace from Guillermo on the stroke of half-time and then after 82 minutes.Numancia ended the game with 10 men after captain Dani Calvo was red-carded in the dying moments.
