Full report
Sevilla already had one foot in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey after they beat Mirandes 2-0 in the first leg and they secured another confident victory in the second leg.

They were given early breathing space in the away leg when midfielder Ion Velez tripped Sebastián Cristóforo in the area and the referee pointed to the penalty spot.

Vicente Iborra stepped up to convert the spot kick to give Sevilla a commanding 3-0 aggregate lead.

The visitors continued to make all the running in the match as their class told against the Segunda Division outfit.

And it was no surprise when they doubled their lead on the night in the second half as Vitolo did all the hard work on the left before sending the ball into the box where Juan Munoz slotted home from close range.

Nestor Salinas hit the post late on with a header for Mirandes while Gorka Kijera brought out a save from goalkeeper David Soria, but Coke had the final say in the match as he headed home in the 90th minute following a cross from Gael Kakuta.
