TONIGHTS SPANISH CUP | COPA DEL REY - KINGS CUP GAMES RESULTS

Spanish Cup - Copa del Rey ( Kings Cup ) action continued today with two matches scheduled with 1ºst leg Quarter-Final clashes. Here are tonight s final results-scores along with all the goalscorers.

COPA DEL REY 2014

Real Sociedad managed to put one foot into the Kings Cup semi-finals after defeating 3 -1 Racing de Santander. In fact the 83rd min goal by Racing forward Kone gives his team a slim hope of a possible comeback at home in the return match. 

Earlier on Real Sociedad dominated & scored with two goals from Mikel Gonzalez - 4th & 33rd min - & a goal from Mexican Carlos Vela in the 63rd min. Real Sociedad could have scored more goals but they failed to convert luckily for Racing.

SPANISH CUP 2014

Replay of last weekend Liga clash were both sides drew 1 - 1. Tonight Levante hosted FC Barcelona in the 1ºst leg Quarter-final match of the Copa del Rey & lost 1 - 4.

Levante was brave & played a good game putting Barça on the back foot during the first half. But maintaining Barça for 90 min is a difficult endeavour & takes out all your energy as happened with Levante.

The home side got ahead first with a El Arabi 30th min goal that lifted the team & shook Barça. Levante maintained the pressure & the intensity but an own goal in the 53rd min by Levante defender Juan Fran lowered the spirits of Levante & lifted Barça which "smelt blood". FC Barcelona then went in for "the kill" attacking & was rewarded with 60th min , 80th min & 86th min Cristian Tello goals ( HAT-TRICK ) with impressive Messi assists. Lionel Messi was an important factor in helping to lift his teams performance in the 2º half & he tried everything to get his own goal but kept finding the Levante goalkeeper Jimenez & the Levante defence.

FC Barcelona will now host Levante in "Camp Nou" & has an important advantage. If nothing goes wrong Barça has virtually sealed their semi-finals ticket.


The last & big Spanish Cup match tomorrow night between Atletico de Madrid & Athletic Club Bilbao. Not to be missed!
