Copa del Rey, second round

The second round of the cup took place this week, with second division A sides entering the competition at this stage. As luck would have it, two former cup winners were drawn together, with Real Sociedad running out 1-0 winners over Zaragoza thanks to a goal early in the second half by Marcos. Murcia have Elía to thank for their victory at Xerez, the keeper saving two penalties as Clemente's side won the shoot out 1-4. The game itself ended 1-1. Granada 74 also went through on penalties in one of the ties between lower division sides, and another of last season's relegated sides Poli Ejido beat Conquense 2-0. (03.09.08)
