Copa cruise for Solari in first match in charge. Santiago Solari got a win in his first game as interim Real Madrid boss, as they saw off Melilla in the Copa del Rey last-32 first leg.
Real Madrid were comfortable 4-0 winners over Melilla on Wednesday in Santiago Solari‚Äôs first match as interim head coach.
Goals from Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo Gonzalez gave the European champions a Copa del Rey first-leg victory that sets them firmly on course for the last 16.
Solari, placed in temporary charge following Julen Lopetegui‚Äôs sacking on Monday, named a youthful side in the Spanish city in north Africa that included Vinicius Junior.
But it was two of the more established first-team stars that helped secure the win ‚Äď just Madrid‚Äôs second in eight matches in all competitions ‚Äď and restored some sense of calm to a club thrown into turmoil in the aftermath of Sunday‚Äôs 5-1 Clasico hammering at Camp Nou.
