There were amazing scenes in Spain last night, where third tier part-timers CD Mirandés beat La Liga side Espanyol 2-1 in injury time at the tiny, 6,000-capacity Anduva Stadium to secure themselves a 4-4 aggregate (away goals) win and a berth in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey in the process…

Giant Killers!

Mirandés, who are captained by Pablo Infante – a bank clerk by day and top-scorer (with seven goals) in this year’s Copa del Rey by night – have now beaten three top flight opponents on the spin and will face either Athletic Bilbao or Real Mallorca in the last four.

Hala Mirandés!!!

    Great story. ”The Magic” of the Copa Del Rey

  2. Manolo Garnix says:

    They just need to pass the next round to qualify for the Europa League. Because in the final the would face either Barca or Real. But it’s easier said than done.

    This is the only thing I like about La Liga (the two horse race that it is). It’s amazing when teams like Levante and Mirantes work wonderful magic!

    The commentator sounds like he’s choking on something with that whole golgolgolgolgolgol thing
