The Copa del Rey celebrated the first round of the round of sixteenths. It is a tournament that no longer admits the slightest loss. A single party and in the field of the rival of lower category should not give more options. Mallorca did it, with an alignment full of substitutes. Logically, before a rival like Zaragoza, one of the best in the Second Division, he took a serious corrective in La Romareda. Those of Víctor Fernández not only won 3-1, but also enjoyed a great number of occasions to achieve an even wider score. Equality remained, however, in the first half. The best occasion was for the locals in a shot from Kagawa to the squad. Mallorca, which came from scoring four goals for Valencia, just arrived.
His defensive weakness caused that after 48 minutes Álex Blanco finished off with absolute comfort within the area to make the 1-0. Well, recently assigned by Sevilla, had the opportunity to tie in a header. From there, debacle Balearic. Javi Puado and Linares scored against and only Febas made up the score at the end.
Osasuna had a very bad time in the Nuevo Colombino. Lost in the 11th place of Group IV of Second B, the Recreativo had football and game to get ahead on the scoreboard with a 2-0 thanks to the goals of Morcillo and Roncaglia, in their own door. Osasuna reacted in the second half. Brasanac reduced the distances and the Chimy Avila, who came out in the second half, made the 2-2. Of course, the Argentine scored offside, but the VAR reaches the Cup in the next round, in the round of 16. Recreativo could still make the 3-2 in extra time in a Chuli game, but it was Íñigo Pérez who, in the 111th minute, qualified the Navarrese. Osasuna woke up in time in front of a very dignified Recreativo, who fought until he had strength and ended his meritorious performance in the Cup.
Sevilla took it seriously and dispatched Levante in the duel between two First teams. Fernando, Ocampos and Óliver Torres scored for the Andalusian team. Duarte scored the Levante goal, which was 1-1. Sevilla was very superior (3-1) and came again and again to the goal defended by Aitor, who again offered a wide range of stops. The Cup is a tournament very dear to the Andalusian entity, so it always plays with great seriousness.
Fernando scored his first goal as Sevilla to advance on the scoreboard to those of Lopetegui. The Levante did not decompose and had the success of marking in its first serious approach to the Vaclik area. A good header from Duarte surprised the Czech. With 1-1 on the scoreboard came to rest. Somewhat from Ocampos as soon as the second half began, it calmed the mood of the locals. The goal had a special dedication. It was a tribute to Sala a year after his death in a plane crash. Diego Carlos, partner of the Argentine in Nantes, and Ocampos himself showed a shirt in memory of Sala. Sevilla came again and again to the Aitor area until Óliver Torres made the third after a pass from De Jong. There was a double out of play in the play, but the VAR did not exist so much went up to the scoreboard. However, this third goal does not tarnish the very fair classification of Sevilla, which made up to 25 shots against the goal of Aitor. The Levante goalkeeper made seven stops and his team only six shots.
