Copa del Rey, quarter finals, second leg
Barcelona are out of the Spanish cup after losing to Zaragoza 5-4 on aggregate. Frank Rijkaard's side got off to a flying start with Giuly hitting the bar early on. But Jorquera had to be at his best to keep out Ewerthon at the other end, and shortly before half time Barça were left with ten men when Ronaldinho was sent off for a late tackle on Cani. Three minutes later though Messi headed Giuly's cross past César to open the scoring, and Iniesta hit the outside of the post soon after the restart. However Oscar González curled a long shot over the head of Jorquera midway through the second half, and although an injury time strike by substitute Larsson made it 2-1 on the night, it was not enough to prevent Víctor Muñoz's side from going through to play Real Madrid in the semi finals.
Deportivo will play Espanyol in the other semi-final after they knocked out Valencia in their rescheduled match. The game had been abandoned just before half time a week ago after a linesman was hit by an object thrown from the crowd, and the remaining minutes (which had to be played behind closed doors) almost didn't take place after the visitors tried to persuade the disciplinary committee and then a local judge that they should be awarded the tie. David Villa had cancelled out Sergio's first leg penalty just before the game was suspended, but another hotly disputed penalty which Víctor converted in the second half made it 1-1 and took the Galicians through.
