Enrique De Lucas: Scored an extra-time goal

The Primera Division side faced an uphill struggle after losing the first leg 2-0 although they gave themselves hope when Park Chu-Young netted in the 55th minute.

But it was only in the dying seconds when they levelled the tie through Roberto Lago and substitute De Lucas capped a remarkable comeback in the 109th minute before Almeria's night was compounded when Aaron Niguez was sent off three minutes from time.

Real Zaragoza and Real Mallorca both progressed courtesy of the away goals rule.

Despite goals from Jude Ighalo and Diego Mainz giving Granada a 2-1 win at home, 10-man Zaragoza sealed their spot in the next round thanks to Jose Mari's strike although they were forced to hang on for a 2-2 aggregate result after Helder Postiga was sent off.

Mallorca's goalless draw at home to Deportivo La Coruna ensured their 1-1 stalemate at the Riazor in the first leg proved crucial.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
