Real Madrid level in Copa Del Rey quarter final after Ronaldo free kick and Danilo own goal
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a freekick to equalise for Real Madrid after a Danilo own goal Celta Vigo the lead in the second leg of their Copa Del Rey quarter final.
Los Blancos came into the game having lost 2-1 in the first meeting at the Santiago Bernabeu last week and they really needed to hit the ground running in this game.
But just before half time, their Brazilian fullback, who has struggled to establish himself since a big money move from FC Porto in 2015, put the ball through his own net.
A shot from former Manchester City striker John Guidetti was saved by goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, who started in place of regular stopper Keylor Navas after a real defensive mix up, only for the ball to strike Danilo and end up in the net.
Ronaldo has pulled them back into the action with a free kick, but the score still stands at 3-2 on aggregate to Celta.
Real, who are top of La Liga with a game in hand the chasing pack, Sevilla and arch rivals Barcelona, are looking for their first domestic title under boss Zinedine Zidane. The Frenchman is in his first full season after replacing Rafa Benitez in January 2016, going on to win the Champions League in his first full season.
