Celta Vigo held their fancied opponents Real Madrid to dump them out of the Copa del Rey.

A 2-2 stalemate meant Celta beat Los Blancos 4-3 on aggregate to enter the semi-finals of the cup tournament.

A Danila own goal right before half-time was a huge blow for the injury-plagued Real Madrid.

A fine free-kick from Ronaldo after the break gave Madrid hope. However, Daniel Wass restored Celta's lead five minutes from time before Lucas Vazquez's stoppage time header at least prevented Madrid from suffering a third defeat in four games.
