Deputy leader of La Liga, Sevilla suffered this Wednesday to seal the passage to the 16th of the final of the Copa del Rey, only eliminating Andratx, from the fourth division, in the penalty shoot-out.
The Andalusians took the lead in the match thanks to a goal by Rafa Mir (57′), but saw Miquel Llabrés equalize the scoreboard (65′), a draw that dragged on until the end of 90 minutes… and of the prolongation. Only from the 11m mark did Julen Lopetegui’s team manage to surpass itself (6-5 – they only missed one penalty, while the home team missed two), moving forward in the competition.
In the next phase is also Villareal, who thrashed Sanluqueño, in the third division, by 7-1. Paco Alcácer (8 and 13), Javi Duro (27, bp), Chukwueze (40), Moi Gómez (42), Manu Trigueros (67) and Dani Raba 79) were the authors of the hits for Villareal, while Adrián Armental did the goal of honor.
Real Sociedad also qualified, beating Zamora (3rd division) 3-0, thanks to the aim of Jon Guridi, Beñat Torrientes and Mikel Oyarzabal, as well as Rayo Vallecano (Bebé started), who beat Bergantiños (4th division), by 3-1 (Mario Suárez, Ciss and Sergio Moreno scored for Rayo and Jorge Cano for the home team), and Elche, who got the better of Unionistas de Salamanca (third division) by 1-0, with Fer Román’s own goal at 90+3.
