PICTURE: Arsenal linked Morata gets a black eye in action for Madrid

Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata's brief stint in a Real Madrid shirt did not go well tonight.

Real Madrid sealed a comfortable win over Osasuna in the Copa del Rey tonight, with the irrepressible Cristiano Ronaldo bagging the opener.

After going 2-0 up midway through the second half through Angel di Maria, Madrid eased off and brought on youngster Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard has had a busy month off the field, linked with transfers to Arsenal, Inter Milan, Juventus and Benfica. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has always however insisted he wants to keep the youngster.

Morata's night didn't go so well, on in the 69th minute he picked up a black-eye in a challenge minutes after coming on, as seen above.

He also failed to score as the game petered out, meaning his last goal remains the one he scored back on November 23.
