Valencia Eliminates Feisty Sporting from Copa del Rey

VALENCIA, Spain Ė Valencia prevailed 3-0 on Tuesday over second-division side Sporting Gijon to win their Copa del Rey round-of-16 tie 4-2 on aggregate.

Sporting, the only team from the lower divisions to reach the last 16, shocked the LaLiga club 2-1 in the first leg at Gijon

The hosts started badly in front of 33,000 supporters at the Mestalla, struggling to create on offensive against well-organized Sporting, who came the closest to scoring in the first half with Robin Lodís header in the 32nd minute.

Valencia came to life with the re-start and took command in the 65th minute as Santi Mina converted a fine cross from Daniel Wass to level the aggregate score at 2-2, enough to push his side over the line thanks to their away goal in the first leg.

But instead of playing for the draw, Valencia pursued victory and Mina made it 2-0 on the night with a strike in the 75th minute.

Ferran Torres added a third goal for the hosts in the final minute of regulation.
