Thursday's Copa del Rey clash between Los Blancos and Elche went to extra-time after both sides failed to find the net inside 90 minutes.
Elche then opened the scoring with 103 minutes on the clock and a shock appeared to be on the cards, but Carlo Ancelotti's side managed to scrape through to the quarter-finals thanks to late goals from Isco and Eden Hazard.
Following his lack of game time for Madrid of late, Hazard will grab the headlines after coming off the bench to score.
But perhaps the biggest talking point during normal time was that 'ghost' tackle involving an unfortunate Toni Kroos, who was booked for making no contact with Elche winger Tete Morente.
That's right. The German midfielder was given a yellow card for this - a decision that has completely baffled social media.
That yellow card for Toni Kroos is the worst decision I’ve ever seen 😂😂😂— LIAM (@TB6391) January 20, 2022
Can't believe Toni Kroos received a yellow card for an Elche player making a ridiculous dive right in front of the ref ...#HalaMadrid— ︎ ︎ (@HalaHancok) January 20, 2022
