REAL MADRID are in action for the first time since sacking manager Julen Lopetegui.

The Spanish giants face third-tier side Melilla in the Copa del Rey and will want to impress following a turbulent week both off and on the field.

Lopetegui was dismissed following the embarrassing 5-1 thrashing by rivals Barcelona, which concluded a sequence of five defeats in seven games.

Barca have won this competition four years in a row and Madrid are out to reclaim the trophy they last lifted in 2014.

What time is kick-off?

THIS first-leg is set for Wednesday, October 31.

Kick-off is at 6.30pm UK time.

Melilla play in the third tier of Spanish football, where they currently sit second in the Segunda Division B, Group 4.

Which TV channel can I watch it on?

UNFORTUNATELY this game isn’t being broadcast live in the UK.

But here at SunSport we will be running a dedicated LIVE BLOG to keep you up to date with the action.


What is the team news?

MARCELO looks set to continue his spell on the sidelines after a troublesome knee problem flared against Sevilla.

And in even worse news for Real, they could be without Raphael Varane for up to a month after he suffered an adductor injury.

In Yacine Qasmi the home side have the top scorer in the division and will be hopeful of notching in what would be a famous result.
