Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey opponents submit a list of player shirts they want

Real Madrid’s next opponents have submitted a list to highlight the shirts their players want after the game.

Los Blancos are in Copa del Rey action on Saturday night as they take on fourth-tier Arandina away from home.

The club has never been higher than the third tier in their 37-year history but welcomes the 14-time European champions to a sold-out Estadio El Montecillo in the round of 32 clash.

Arandina beat Real Murcia in the first round before coming up with a huge upset with victory over La Liga side Cadiz last month.

For this group of players, a meeting with Real is a fixture of dreams and they celebrated the draw in wild fashion.

Many are understandably hopeful of a souvenir from the match and they have made the unprecedented move to submit a list of requests.

After a sensational 17 goals in 22 games since joining in the summer, Jude Bellingham was the go-to pick for three different players.

Toni Kroos and Rodrygo Goes both had two players request their jersey, but it was Luka Modric who was clearly the man in demand.

As many as nine different players will be fighting over the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner’s shirt.

Shot-stoppers Adri and Hara are keeping the goalkeeping union strong by opting for Kepa Arrizabalaga and Thibaut Courtois.

Forward Atomo wants Nacho Fernandez’s for his sister, while Ayoub El Battioui is desperate for Vinicius Jr’s.

“In the locker room I proposed the idea of ​​trying to get as many shirts as possible because at the end of the day everyone is going to want the same shirt,” captain Jorge Gonzalez said.

“And I think the beauty of this match is having a memory. If Madrid can provide us with more t-shirts, welcome.”
