Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti set their sights on ending 49-year Copa del Rey drought in 2024

Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey Defence

The Challenge Ahead

Real Madrid will begin their defence of the Copa del Rey title on Saturday evening when they travel to face fourth-tier side Arandina CF. The Castille and Leon-based side have already defeated La Liga opposition (Cadiz) in this season’s competition, and they will be aiming for a giant killing once again. Los Blancos won’t be taking anything for granted against their lower-league opponents, as they look to build on last season’s success.

The Ambition of Ancelotti

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti will be taking things seriously, as he aims for back-to-back successes in the competition. Real Madrid have won the Copa del Rey 20 times in their history, although they haven’t managed to retain the trophy since the 1974-75 season, as per Diario AS. Ancelotti and his players will be aiming to snap this streak come the end of the campaign, as they look to break his 49-year streak.
