Copa del Rey: Rodrygo Spurs Madrid Past Osasuna To End Nine-Year Wait For Title

Copa del Rey: Rodrygo Spurs Madrid Past Osasuna To End Nine-

Vinicius and Rodrygo

Rodrygo Goes fires Real Madrid to Copa del Rey glory with a clinical double in a 2-1 victory over Osasuna in Seville.

The Brazilian forward scored in the second minute and again in the 81st minute to secure Madrid's 20th Spanish Cup in their 40th final.

Despite a valiant effort from Osasuna, who equalized through Lucas Torro in the 58th minute, the reigning Spanish and European champions proved too strong for their opponents.

Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti left midfielder Luka Modric on the bench due to injury, while Osasuna deployed midfielder Jon Moncayola at right-back to try and stop Madrid winger Vinicius Junior, but it was Rodrygo who proved to be the match-winner.

The victory also ends a nine-year wait for Madrid to lift the trophy again and sets them up nicely for their Champions League semi-final against Manchester City on Tuesday.
