Barbastro’s feat in the Cup by eliminating Almería

El Barbastro, a humble Second RFEF team, achieved a feat this Wednesday by eliminating Almería (1-0) in the second round of the Copa del Rey, a tournament revitalized thanks to the single-match duels in which the modest teams challenge the greats every season. Another Second RFEF team, Tudelano, lasted 124 minutes against Las Palmas, to finally fall cruelly in the last play of extra time (1-2), with time already up, with a goal from Munir that bent his hands of the local goalkeeper and avoided penalties on Navarrese territory.

Unionistas de Salamanca, from Primera RFEF, also gave a surprise by dismissing Sporting de Gijón (2-0), second classified in the silver category and which will be, along with Málaga, Castellón and Lugo, one of the teams of the formerly called Second B that will be in the draw for the round of 32 on Tuesday, already with Real Madrid, Barça, Atlético and Osasuna in the hype.

A goal from Franky, Barbastro’s hero, knocked down Almería (bottom of Primera without knowing the victory and only team from the top category eliminated this Wednesday), incapable on the pitch, without tactical solutions and emotionally sunk. A harsh and unexpected elimination that puts Gaizka Garitano, the Basque coach who has already landed in high doubt due to that past in which he confronted a local journalist who at a press conference reproached him for speaking in Basque, even more in the spotlight.

It was enough for Barbastro to use himself with ambition and without fear to beat a cartoonish Almería, without intensity, without play and without guts. The Huesca team had already warned off a set piece before scoring on the stroke of half an hour in another strategic action. Franky, a dedicated left-back, was the executor of the Indálicos and scored the most media goal in the history of Barbastro. As a result of the changes and an outburst of pride, Almería seemed to react in the second half, but only had one good chance when Leo Baptistao hit the ball against the post. From then on, the Aragonese team not only maintained their form, but even scored the second goal against a soulless rival.

Unionistas also qualified for the round of 32, for the second time in their short 10-year history, by beating a very disappointing Sporting at the Reina Sofía that hardly had any chances in Salamanca and followed the path of Oviedo, fired the night before by Castellón . Unionistas already qualified for the round of 32 of the Cup in the 2019-2020 season, when they lost to Real Madrid (1-3) after the charro team eliminated Deportivo on penalties in the second round.

Betis and Rayo, on the horn

In the rest of the matches with First Division representatives there were no surprises, although before the agonizing classification of Las Palmas (1-1 in regulation time), Betis, Real Sociedad, Alavés and Rayo Vallecano also suffered to defeat to survivors of the Second RFEF. The green and white team, Cup champion in 2022, lost 1-0 against Villanovense in the 89th minute, but Betis came back in five minutes thanks to goals from Abde and Borja Iglesias, in the 93rd minute, ruining the team’s hopes. Extremaduran team.

The San Sebastian team and the Vitorian team narrowly beat Andratx and Terrassa, respectively, while the team from Madrid knew how to use patience to defeat Yeclano 0-2. Like that of Las Palmas and Betis, it was a victory achieved almost on the horn by Rayo, with goals from Radamel Falcao and Raúl de Tomás in the 89th and 95th minutes, against a very combative rival determined to try to create another feat on Constitution Day.
