Despite only entering the fray in the 84th minute, Emmanuel Adebayor instantly endeared himself to the Real Madrid support by thudding home a clinical volley on his Bernabeu debut – notching the landmark 5000th home goal scored by the prestigious club (Jose Giralt scored the first back in 1903)
in the process…


Adebayor’s 90th-minute strike rounded off a 2-0 win (Mesut Ozil opened the scoring a few minutes earlier) and thus ensured Real passage through to a Copa Del Rey showdown with…you guessed it, their arch-rivals Barcelona.

For the record, Guti scored Los Blancos’ 5000th league goal against Numancia in September 2008.
