It’s a new attendance record for the competition, the previous one was set by Anderlecht-FC Barcelona in February 2015 with 12,871 spectators.A shot by Dani Gomez on 25 ‘became the clearest chance at the beginning of the match, and, with patience, Guti’s team started to find holes in the oppositions formation. Ignatyve had the hosts’ first decent effort, the Russian being the top scorer in the competition (10), three goals above Dani. The only way the Russians could get at Guti’s team it seemed, was through fouls. Real pressed hard but their aim was off and they didn’t trouble Safonov in the Krasnodar goal. In added time, Moha pushed Ignatyve’s shot onto the woodwork, but two more shots on goal in those five extra minutes showed Los Blancos they would have to battle to the end.Without extra-time, the game was decided from the penalty spot. It ended with a Real victory thanks to a magnificent performance by Moha who became a hero. The goalkeeper stopped the first three penalties and sent his team into the next round.MATCH DETAILSKrasnodar: Safonov, Ivashin, Utkin, Golubev, Chernikov, Martynov, Sergeev, Grigoryan (62 ‘), Bochko, Borodin, Ignatyev, SuleymanovReal Madrid: Moha, Lopez, Alex Martin, Zabarte, Martin, Alberto, Augusto, Baeza (60 ‘), Dani Gómez, Oscar, Gelabert, Antonio Blanco (85’), Adri
