Real Madrid's 7-1 Copa del Rey victory over Cultural Leonesa on Wednesday night saw Marco Asensio continue his record of having scored on his first appearance for Los Blancos in every competition.

On target in Super Cup, LaLiga and Champions League debuts

The 20-year-old starlet went into the fourth-round first-leg tie at the Estadio Reino de León having already netted on his Real debuts in the UEFA Super Cup, LaLiga and the Champions League.

A stunning Super Cup strike against Sevilla in August - in what was his competitive bow for Madrid - was followed by a classy goal in his side's win over Real Sociedad on the opening day of the Spanish top-flight season.

Last week, the Real Mallorca youth product then marked his maiden outing in Europe's premier club tournament by hitting the third in the holders' 5-1 group-stage defeat of Legia Warsaw.

Two goals in León to continue debut run

And against Cultural he grabbed a double to add the Copa to his list, putting Real 2-0 up with a low 32nd-minute effort before firing in the fourth soon after the break.

Next in Asensio's sights will be the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan, which Zinedine Zidane's men begin at the semi-final stage on 15 December.
