Cope Del Rey: Perfection ends for Barcelona as Sevilla dump them out the cup; Depor, Osasuna, Santander & Getafe all advance

Sevilla 0* – Barcelona 1 (Agg. 2-2) (Copa del Rey, January 13, 2010) Xavi made the breakthrough at Sevilla just after the hour mark, firing into the bottom corner with Sevilla calling for handball. Despite playing some of their trademark cracking football, Messi hit the post late on, Barcelona were knocked out on the away goals rule.

Deportivo La Coruna 2 – Valencia 2 (Agg. 4-3) (Copa del Rey, January 13, 2010) Valencia’s beanpole striker Nikola Zigic used his signature move to put the visitors ahead at Depor, heading a left wing cross into the top corner. Los Che doubled their lead in the 28th minute as once again Nikola Zigic found the back net with a well-controlled header. Felipe’s solo effort in the 50th minute brought Depor right into the match, and in the 72nd minute they equalised through Juan Rodriguez’s tidy finish at the near post.

Osasuna 1* – Hercules 0 (Agg. 2-2) (Copa del Rey, January 13, 2010) Osasuna scraped past second division Hercules on the away goals rule after Massoud Shojaei scored a fine solo effort to secure a 1-0 victory on the night and a 2-2 aggregate scoreline.

Racing Santander 0 – Alcorcon 0 (Agg. 3-2) (Copa del Rey, January 13, 2010) Alcorcon’s Copa del Rey adventure came to an end as they were edged out by Racing Santander following a 0-0 stalemate in the second leg.

Getafe 5 – Malaga 1 (Agg. 6-3) (Copa del Rey, January 13, 2010) Trailing 2-1 from their first meeting, the home side overturned the deficit and moved ahead thanks to first-half goals from Roberto Soldado and Lopez Rafa. And they completed a memorable victory with further goals after the break from Soldado and Leon, with Jiminez Juanmi’s 63rd-minute response merely academic as Dani Parejo grabbed a fifth for the hosts.
