Gonzalo Higuain was happy with his goal in Real Madrid's 2-1 Copa del Rey defeat at Real Mallorca last night.

The Argentine said: "The result wasn't what we wanted, but I leave happy for having scored. The 2-1 result isn't so bad, we have a good chance of overturning it in the second-leg at the Bernabeu.

"Mallorca aren't a bad team, but I am convinced 2-1 isn't a poor result."

Real coach Bernd Schuster also said: "We weren't as solid as I would have liked at key moments in the game."
