Real Madrid thrashed third division Melilla 6-1 to record a 10-1 aggregate win and reach the Spanish Cup last 16.

Marco Asensio’s double and Javi Sanchez’s debut goal earned a 3-0 half-time lead at the Bernabeu.

Isco and Vinicius Junior added two more before Melilla, a tiny Spanish autonomous enclave in north Africa, scored through striker Yacine Qasmi’s 81st-minute penalty.

Spain midfielder Isco got his second goal of the game to complete the rout.

Although Madrid boss Santiago Solari made 10 changes to the team that beat Valencia 2-0 in La Liga on Saturday, he still named four Spain internationals and three-time Champions League-winning goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The first leg, on 31 October, was Solari’s first match in charge.
