Real Betis fight back against Almeria in Copa del Rey as Getafe beat Eibar

Real Betis staged a late comeback as they lost 4-3 at home to Almeria in the first leg of their round-of-16 match in the Copa del Rey on Friday.

Top-flight Almeria scored twice in the opening six minutes at the Estadio Benito Villamarin, with Mane and Teerasil Dangda on the scoresheet, and goals from Quique and Edgar looked to have put them out of sight with just over an hour gone.

However, the hosts battled back, with Ruben Castro netting on 80 minutes before Damien Perquis and Jorge Molina gave their side real hope of turning things around in the second leg.

Pablo Sarabia scored twice and provided an assist to help Getafe beat Eibar 3-0.

Sarabia connected well with Pedro Leon's cross from the right to open the scoring in the 63rd minute before passing the ball for Alvaro Vazquez to score with a skillful back-heel in the 80th.

Four minutes later, Leon provided his second assist of the game for Sarabia to finish inside the near post.

Albacete also drew 1-1 with Levante. Midfielder Thierry Rua Moutinho scored for Albacete by pouncing on a rebound in the sixth.

Morocco defender Issam El Adoua levelled for Levante when he headed Jaime Gavilan's free kick in the 68th after teammate Rafael missed a penalty in the 30th.
