Jabi Luaces' Unionistas have already claimed one scalp in this year's edition of the Copa del Rey - eliminating Deportivo in the Second Round, and now they've got the taste for giantkilling, they'll be hoping to send the mighty Real Madrid crashing out of the competition when the two clubs meet on Wednesday night. Unlike in previous seasons at this stage, Madrid have taken a strong squad to Salamanca - most of the first team squad have made the trip which suggests Zidane is taking the competition seriously - he will be keen to avoid a Cup shock in the team's opening game in the tournament. The last time Madrid lifted the Cup was in the 2013/14 season. As for hosts Unionistas, this is the furthest they have ever got in the competition and the first time they have met top flight opposition.
