‘Pity tie is already decided’

Alcoyano Coach Asier Garitano sees overturning a 4-1 deficit away to Real Madrid tonight as an impossible task.

The Segunda Division B outfit fell to a Copa del Rey first leg defeat at home to Los Blancos and travel out from Valencia to the Spanish capital for this evening’s second leg.

For Garitano, the only guarantee he can see is that his team will now not be progressing to the Last 16.

“It is a shame that the tie is already decided,” reflected the Coach, who has called up his entire squad for the second leg.

“We will try to play with personality, and try to play our game. From the first leg our image has been good, what was not good was the result.

“We will see what we can do against Real Madrid, it will be a good atmosphere.”
