Welcome to the Evening Standard’s Copa del Rey coverage of Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad LIVE.
Los Blancos have moved ahead of arch-rivals Barcelona in the race for the La Liga crown but their focus is back on cup matters tonight.
Real haven’t won the Copa since 2014 – the night Gareth Bale ripped his way through the Barcelona defence to score an 85th minute winner – and Zinedine Zidane is eager to end that wait in what is his first full season back at the Bernabeu.
A place in the semi-finals awaits if they can find a way past Real Sociedad tonight.
With kick-off scheduled for 6pm GMT, follow all the goals and action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog.
