Xabi Alonso pulled off a special assist for Jese Rodriguez to score for Real Madrid v Espanyol [GIF]

Real Madrid beat Espanyol 1-0 in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night.

The victory ensured progression to the semi-finals, seeing off Espanyol 2-0 on aggregate.

It is rare that Los Blancos play and there isn’t a special moment to look back on and last night it belonged to Xabi Alonso.

The assist for Jese Rodriguez to fire home the only goal of the night was super special.

From fairly deep in his own half, Alonso picked out a beautiful long pass, bisecting the Espanyol defence, allowing Jese to barely even break stride.

Just wow!
