Spanish Cup 2013

The 1º leg of the quarter-final ended with REAL MADRID winning 2 - 0 VALENCIA CF. Tonight in the return 2º leg Valencia learnt the lesson, especially after the 0 - 5 drubbing last weekend in La Liga, to halt the Real Madrid counter-attacks & finish tonight with a 1 - 1 draw.

However, Real Madrid did finish with 9 men after Coentrao saw a red card in the 60 th for hand-ball & Di Maria for kicking a Valencia defender in the 89th min. Stupid red card from Di Maria who will miss the 1º st leg of the upcoming semi-final.

Valencia dominated tonight most of the game pressuring much more & attacking constantly, but Real Madrid are most dangerous if you make a slip & in one of the few mistakes BENZEMA scored in the 44th min & put things beyond Valencia.

Real Madrid lost Coentrao to a red card & from the free-kick TINO COSTA equalized in the 61 st min. From here Real Madrid down with 10 men defended, & well with Varane & Albiol solid in defence , to kept out Valencia to the end & qualify for the Spanish Cup semi-finals.

Iker Casillas has an injury & was taken off in the first half after team-mate Arbeloa accidental kicked his keeper in the hand. 

Final result on agg 3 - 1 to Real Madrid.

Tomorrow the last two SPANISH CUP 2º leg return matches.
