Sevilla Advances to Copa del Rey Round of 16

SEVILLE, Spain Ė Sevilla, last seasonís runner-up in the Copa del Rey, punched its ticket for the knockout stage of the 2018-2019 edition with a 1-0 victory on Wednesday over Villanovense.

The first leg ended 0-0, so Sevilla could not afford to be complacent against the third-division side.

Even so, Sevilla coach Pablo Machin started the night with his regular goalkeeper and five other starters on the bench.

The hosts dominated the first half, yet without creating much in the way of genuine threats as Villanovense kept their shape and their poise.

Sevilla came back from the dressing room with a greater sense of urgency and got the crucial goal in the 48th minute.

Luck played a part, as Villanovense goalkeeper Isma Gil was forced to take down Muriel in the area after a long ball bounced off a defenderís back and onto the attackerís head.

The referee awarded a penalty and Andre Silva took the shot. Gil made the initial stop, but the shooter converted on the rebound to make it 1-0 for Sevilla and the hosts held on to win.
