Barcelona made light work of minnows Cartagena at the Nou Camp to complete a 7-1 aggregate win and reach the last 32 of the Copa del Rey.

Gerardo Martino's men were leading the Segunda Division B side 4-1 from the first leg and pulled further away through goals from Pedro (31), Cristian Tello (66) and Neymar (88).

Getafe, who routed Girona 4-1 to complete a 5-2 aggregate win, are next up for the Spanish champions.

Osasuna could meet Real Madrid in the last 16 after beating Malaga on away goals.

The Pamplona club had secured a 3-3 draw in the first leg at the Rosaleda and went ahead on home turf through Weligton's early own goal. Eliseu Pereira made it 1-1 on the hour mark but Malaga could not find the second goal they needed to progress.

Real Madrid on Wednesday welcome third-tier Olimpic Xativa to the Bernabeu. Away goals could be an area of concern for Carlo Ancelotti's men after the first leg ended goalless.

Jeremy Perbet's 57th-minute goal settled a 1-0 win at Elche and sent Villarreal through as 3-2 aggregate winners, while Levante overturned their 1-0 first-leg loss to brush Recreativo Huelva aside 4-0 in the return fixture.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
