Granada knock out champions Valencia to reach Copa semis

Roberto Soldado scored a stoppage-time penalty to send Granada into the Copa del Rey semifinals with a 2-1 win over holders Valencia on Tuesday.

Soldado struck after three minutes to send the Andalusians ahead but his former club levelled through Rodrigo Moreno, who already had a goal ruled out.

Valencia goalkeeper Jaume Domenech made some excellent saves to keep the hosts at bay but with extra-time beckoning, Jaume Costa handled in the area and Soldado completed his brace.
