Mariano made his madridista goal scoring debut in the Copa del Rey

The forward scored his first goal against Cultural Leonesa in a knockout tie in 2016/17.
The Copa del Rey is back and Mariano returns to the competition which saw him score his first Real Madrid goal. The goal came at the municipal Reino de León on the 26th October 2016. It was a last-32 tie and the game was a goal fest away from home (1-7). Mariano was on hand to bury a header after a perfect Lucas Vázquez cross in from the right.

The return leg on 30th November at the Bernabéu saw the forward on fine form again, scoring a hat- trick in the 6-1 rout of Cultural Leonesa. Aside from those four Copa del Rey goals, Mariano ha has scored for the Whites in LaLiga (1) and Champions League (1), with a spectacular right-footed effort against Roma on the 10th September.
