The Spanish international was jogging out of the opposition area when he fainted in the 13th minute of the last-32 meeting. De la Red regained consciousness but was substituted and taken to the Hospital Comarcal in Irun, where he spent the night as a precaution. Club doctors say the 23-year-old blacked out due to a drop in blood pressure caused by overexertion. Real Unión will take a one-goal advantage to the Santiago Bernabéu in a fortnight's time thanks to first leg goals from Juan Domínguez (2) and Iñaqui Goikoetxea. Gonzalo Higuían and Javier Saviola were Madrid's scorers.
