Villarreal Romps 8-0 over Almeria in Copa del Rey

VILLARREAL, Spain – A stellar performance by Cameroon’s Toko Ekambi, who scored four goals, helped bury second-division side Almeria and qualified Villarreal for the knockout stage of the Copa del Rey thanks to an 8-0 victory on Wednesday in the second leg for an 11-3 win on aggregate.

In addition to Ekambi’s goals, Carlos Bacca scored twice and Gerard Moreno and Dani Raba notched one each to catapult Javi Calleja’s team to victory against an Almeria that started out the match well but gradually deteriorated to the point where they were giving their clearly superior rivals all sorts of scoring chances.

Ekambi began his fabulous score-fest in the 23rd minute and got his second tally just seven minutes later.

At 2-0, the hosts established themselves as the absolute owner of the pitch against a stunned and groggy Almeria, who let Ekambi into scoring range again in the 34th minute for his third goal.

As if Ekambi’s work were not enough, in the last play of the first half, Bacca joined the party by getting the fourth goal on the board.

But the nightmare was not over, when just seconds after play resumed after the break Ekambi got his fourth goal to make it 5-0.

Gerard Moreno, Bacca – on a penalty – and Dani Raba added three more goals before Almeria’s ordeal was through.
