Semifinals set - Copa del Rey
Zaragoza went down 2-1 to ten-man Barcelona, but made it through on goal differential, having taken the first leg 4-2 at La Romareda. This match was not without its share of controversy, as Ronaldinho was questionably sent off with a straight red - perhaps a bit of payback for the botched refereeing in the first leg, when Barcelona were gifted two goals.
The other match saw Deportivo coming back to tie 1-1 and win passage to the next round. You will recall this match was suspended after 44 minutes when the linesman was beaned in the face with a coin. The remainder of the match was played last night in a closed Mestalla stadium.
The semis will thus be Madrid - Zaragoza
and Espanyol - Deportivo
to be played February 8th and 15th.
