An extremely comfortable win for Real Madrid in the end. They head into the next round of the Copa del Rye having smashed 10 goals past Melilla in the round of 32. This performance showed that Solari has more depth to his squad than many people realise. Asensio and Isco were both fantastic.

- End of 2nd Half
FULL TIME: Real Madrid 6-1 Melilla (10-1 on aggregate)
Of course, it's the round of 16 where things will get real for Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey. Barcelona have won this competition for four years in a row. Can Real topple them?
Just two minutes of stoppage time to be played at the end of the match.
Asensio and Isco have been the standout performers for the European champions, with both players bagging a brace apiece. Asensio has had so much space to play in. He's enjoyed himself.
This has been a comfortable performance from Real Madrid in this second half. Melilla never really stood a chance. Solari picked a team full of quality for this game this afternoon.
Mariano is sitting on the bench and hasn't returned to the dressing room, so maybe it isn't such a serious injury for the striker, but this won't help him make an impression at Real.
Mariano injury! Real Madrid will finish this match with 10 men. The striker has taken a seat on the bench and looks quite upset by whatever injury he has picked up late on here.
- GoalIscoReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 6 (83 mins - Isco) Melilla 1 (10-1 on aggregate). Another goal for Isco! That's two for the afternoon for the playmaker. Real Madrid send bodies forward on the counter, with the ball played to Isco inside the box. The playmaker lashes a low finish into the back of the net. Nice finish.
- Goal by penaltyYacine QasmiUD Melilla
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 5 Melilla 1 (81 mins - Yacine Qasmi pen) - 9-1 on aggregate. Melilla have a goal to remember their trip to the Santiago Bernabeu by! Having won the spot kick, it's Yacine that steps up to the mark and finds the back of the Real Madrid net. Of course, that's nothing more than a consolation goal.
PENALTY KICK TO MELILLA! The away side will have a chance to score a goal. Yacine draws the spot kick with some nice footwork.
Fidalgo comes on for Vinicius, who leaves the pitch with a goal under his belt.
Navas makes the save! That was close to being a consolation goal for Melilla, with Yacine taking aim from the edge of the box, but the Costa Rican goalkeeper makes the diving save.
He has been desperate for that goal. Vinicius has snatched at his chances, and he didn't show a great deal of composure with that finish, but what mattered was that it was a goal.
- GoalVinícius JúniorReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 5 (75 mins - Vinicius Junior) Melilla 0 (9-0 on aggregate). There's the goal Vinicius has been desperate for! There was a great deal of luck involved, with the Brazilian bundling his way through the defence and in the end his shot is deflected into the back of the net on the rebound.
Chance for Melilla! Oscar simply took too long to decide what he wanted to do with the ball in the Real Madrid penalty area. That allowed Sanchez to get back and make the tackle!
Slip! Garcia was played in behind the Melilla defensive line, the pass from Vinicius was perfect, but Mariano couldn't keep his footing in the penalty area as the ball was played back to him.
Melilla are now being a bit more adventurous as they look for a goal to remember their trip to the Santiago Bernabeu by. The problem with that is they're leaving themselves open at the back.
Asensio was looking for the run of Vinicius, who was breaking beyond the Melilla backline, but the pass was just a little too strong and the Brazilian couldn't reach it.
Was that a penalty kick? Odriozola bursts into the box, but is bundled over by the Melilla full back. The Real Madrid youngster believes that should have been a spot kick, but nothing is given.
This is relentless from Real Madrid. Melilla have barely had a look in in this second half. What is impressive is that the home side aren't taking their foot off the pedal much.
That was always going to be a difficult one for Valverde. His touch was a good one, but he was a long way out from goal and his shot is a tame one. Luis watches it dribble wide.
The two young centre backs Sanchez and Vallejo will be keen to see out the clean sheet from this game. Melilla threatened in the first half, but have had nothing at all since then.
The home supporters inside the Santiago Bernabeu believe that their team should have been given a freekick for what they saw to be a foul on Odriozola. He might have been looking for it.
Isco is toying with the opposition now. The Real Madrid playmaker has been out of the team in recent weeks, but this has been a good opportunity for him to get back into the swing of things.
Mariano is desperate for a goal here and it is to his detriment. He is playing with blinkers on. He's tackled on the edge of the box when he should have passed it out to Vinicius out wide.
Another Vinicius chance! The Brazilian teenager this time tries to round Luis in the Melilla goal. That was a lack of composure from Vinicius, which has been a common theme.
One thing that Solari will want in this second half is a goal for Vinicius. The Brazilian teenager badly wants a goal and he has had the opportunities to find the back of the net.
Melilla hav fallen out of this game. They caused some problems of their own in the opening 30 minutes, but Real Madrid have outgunned them since then. It's been comprehensive.
Of course, there has been speculation around Isco in recent weeks. There was a report that he and Solari have fallen out, but on this basis the playmaker is still happy at Real Madrid.
That was the most Isco goal there has ever been. There was very little backlift on the strike from the playmaker, but the ball exploded off his boot and powered into the Melilla net.
- GoalIscoReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 4 (48 mins - Isco) Melilla 0 (8-0 on aggregate). I think that's what they call a 'Golazo!' What a strike from Isco. He takes control of the ball the best part of 25 yards out and he curls a right-footed strike right into the top corner of the net. There was nothing Luis could do about that.
Solari has made a double change at the half time break, with Ceballos and Garcia coming on for Llorente and Carvajal.
- 2nd Half
The second half is under way! Real Madrid have a 3-0, 7-0 on aggregate, lead over Melilla.

- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Real Madrid 3-0 Melilla (7-0 on aggregate): As if this tie wasn't already settled, it is no. Real Madrid are well out of sight and Asensio has been the star man for the hosts.
Asensio really has been excellent in this first half. Sure, he's playing against third tier opposition, but surely he deserves more first team action in La Liga and Champions League?
There's a lot to excite the fans about this Real Madrid team. From Llorente to Sanchez, Odriozola to Vinicius, Asensio to Valverde, this is a side that is full of talent for the future.
Sanchez is the captain of Real Madrid's Castilla side and much is expected of the young centre back. This afternoon could be the start of something special for both club and player.
Well, I said about 10 minutes ago that it seemed that Real Madrid were turning the screw on Melilla and they have since scored three goals. They are well out of sight already.
- GoalJavi SánchezReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 3 (39 mins - Javi Sanchez) Melilla 0 (7-0 on aggregate). This is getting quite ugly for the lower league side. Sanchez gets on the end of a fantastic pass over the top from Asensio and the youngster, on his debut for Real Madrid, finishes off the underside of the bar. Great goal.
Vinicius' skill was what created the second goal for Asensio, but the run from Mariano to the near post also created the space for his teammate. That probably won't be picked up, but it was key.
So Real Madrid have taken full control of this second leg match in the last few minutes. Asensio had been one of the best players on the pitch in this half and now he has two goals.
- GoalMarco AsensioReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 2 (35 mins - Marco Asensio) Melilla 0 (6-0 on aggregate). Asensio grabs his second goal in three minutes, but that one was all about Vinicius. He broke the ankles of the Melilla defender, found Asensio free in the box with the cut back and he calmly finished into the back of the net.
- GoalMarco AsensioReal Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 1 (33 mins - Marco Asensio) Melilla 0 (5-0 on aggregate). Well, that was an easy goal for Real Madrid and it's Asensio who grabs it. Melilla just kept backing off and backing off and that allowed Asensio to drive all the way from the centre circle into the box, curling a finish into the back of the net.
Asensio and Isco have been impressive for Real Madrid in the opening 30 minutes of this match. They're playing at a higher level than anyone else, in white or blue, on the pitch.
It feels like Real Madrid are just starting to crank things up. They are keen to find a breakthrough before the half time interval and Melilla are having to do some defending.
Vinicius shoots over! Isco could have taken on the shot himself, but he tees up the Brazilian teenager, who leans back and sends his effort well over the bar. Should have done better.
What a week it has been for Isco. The playmaker was left out of the squad to face Roma last week in the Champions League, but this evening he is the Real Madrid captain.
What a tackle! The Melilla defender saved a certain goal there. Vinicius was played down the right channel and squared for Mariano, but the last gasp tackle was made to deny him the tap in.
In terms of possession, it's complete control from Real Madrid, but Melilla are sending bodies forward whenever they win the ball and that is causing the home side problems.
It says Pedro Luis has been excellent. Which he has.
There's no Modric for Real Madrid this afternoon. Solari has decided to rest the Croatian midfielder just two days after he was named the Ballon d'Or winner for 2018. Did he deserve it?
Vinicius opportunity! The teenage Brazilian was looking for the far corner of the Melilla net with a curling, right-footed effort, but Luis makes the diving save to deny him the goal.
Navas off his line! Well, that was bold from the Costa Rican goalkeeper who came flying off his line to head clear a long ball over the top from the away side. It worked well.
This has been quite an entertaining match so far. Of course, the tie is effectively settled with Real Madrid winning the first leg 4-0 away from home, but Melilla are going for it here.
Over the bar! Nice footwork by Yacine to create the room for the shot on the edge of the Real Madrid penalty area, but his strike flashes just over the bar. Navas had it covered.
Chance for Isco! That probably should have been an opener for Real Madrid. Asensio picked out Isco with a low pass into the box, but the playmaker's shot is straight at Luis in goals.
Navas reflex save! Not for the first time this afternoon, Melilla split open the Real Madrid defence, with Navas forced into a reflex save to prevent the away side from taking the lead.
Real counter! Llorente wins the ball in the centre of the pitch and starts a rapid counter attack. The pass was played through to Vinicius, who goes down. He wants a penalty, but nothing given.
Mariano will be keen to use this opportunity to fill his boots in front of goal. Solari hasn't used the striker as much as Lopetegui was before him. He has become a peripheral figure.
Quick off his line! Isco sends Mariano through with a nice pass, but the former Lyon striker's first touch wasn't good enough and Luis can come off his line to gather the ball.
Today, the Santiago Bernabeu hosts this Copa del Rey last 32 second leg. On Sunday, it will host the Copa Libertadores final second leg between Boca Juniors and River Plate.
This has been a pretty strong start from the away side. They have made the trip from the north of the African continent, but they are showing no travel sickness early on in this match.
That's not the start that Navas would have wanted in this game. Starts have been hard to come by for the Costa Rican and you can see in his early play that he is rather rusty.
Poor from Navas! Whoops. Navas plays the ball straight to a Melilla player, who crosses for Yacine. He can only head wide of the target, though. That was some Rustiness from Navas.
Melilla are a team who now how to win, they are on course for promotion from their league, but this will surely be a step too far for them. The best they can hope for is to avoid humiliation.
- 1st Half
The match is under way! It's Real Madrid against Melilla in the Copa del Rey last 32 second leg!
Okay, here we go. About to get under way in the Spanish capital. Kick off seconds away.
The two groups of players are now in the tunnel, ready to walk out on to the pitch at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid suffered a Copa del Rey shock at home to Leganes last season, but surely it couldn't happen here? They're 4-0 up!
Not long until kick off at the Santiago Bernabeu. What are you expecting from this game? Is there any way that Melilla can cause problems for the European champions?
I'm Graham Ruthven and you can catch me on Twitter ahead of the game to let me know your thoughts. Can Melilla keep their dignity at the Bernabeu? How many will Real score? Tweet me!
This could get quite messy for third tier Melilla this afternoon. They already trail 4-0 from the first leg played over a month ago and that Real Madrid team isn't exactly weak. Yikes.
Navas starts! He's been out of the Real Madrid team in recent weeks, with Solari favouring Courtois for both the league and the Champions League, but Navas is in for the Copa.
