Third-tier side Melilla, from the African coast, were all at sea on this Spanish national holiday in a last-32 tie with a special kick-off time of 3.15.

The midweek afternoon start marked the 40th anniversary of the country's constitution being approved in a referendum.

But Real's 4-0 first-leg win had already guaranteed a party spirit.

And attacking midfielder Asensio upgraded that mood into a festival by striking on 33 and 35 minutes.
