SPANISH CUP - KINGS CUP - COPA DEL REY GAMES RESULTS

Spanish Cup - Copa del Rey - 2º leg return leg tonight with two matches scheduled. Here are the final results - scores with all the goalscorers.

SPANISH CUP 2014

The 1º st leg match finished in a 1 - 1 draw. Tonight Almeria hosted Racing de Santander & were knocked out of the Copa del Rey after losing 0 - 2. Racing is a lower Division Club which is technically "bankrupt" & they pulled off a big surprise to their merit.

Racing had a clear strategy, defend in the first half & wait for their chance with a more tired Almeria. They managed to pull off their plan as the goals came in the 62nd min from Mariano & in the 79th min by Ruben Duran. Racing de Santander goes into the quarter finals of the Kings Cup with a final 1 - 3 aggregate.


SPANISH CUP 2014

The first leg match ended in a 1 - 1 draw. Atletico de Madrid eliminated Valencia CF from the Spanish Cup after winning 2 - 0. Perhaps Valencia deserved more as they did have their chances but as all season their problems surfaced with goalkeeping-defensive mistakes & ineffective upfront.

Atletico de Madrid is a "tough nut to crack" & are well tuned this season. Super well organized in defence with an extraordinary goalkeeper in Courtois who once again made a couple of very important & decisive saves.

Atletico de Madrid gave new incorporation Sosa a start & was average which is excepted as he has to adapt. Diego Costa was powerful but is going through a minor dry spell which calls our attention. The goals came via a header from defender Godin in the 51st min & from  Raul Garcia in the 89th min that "killed" things. Special mention to Arda Turan who is in a current "state of grace" with his Football.

Atletico de Madrid wins the tie 3 - 1 on aggregate & advances into the quarter finals of the Kings Cup.


Tomorrow more games of the Spanish Cup scheduled.
