Spanish Copa del Rey - 2nd Leg

Las Palmas 0-1 Valencia

Las Palmas v Valencia
Valencia last won the Copa del Rey in 2008

Valencia reached the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey as Rodrigo's goal overcame Las Palmas and eased the pressure on manager Gary Neville.

With the score at 1-1 after the first leg in Valencia, former Bolton loan signing Rodrigo settled the tie after connecting with Andre Gomes' cross.

Neville took charge in December but is still without a win in the league.

But the former Manchester United and England defender has now overseen four wins in the Copa del Rey.

Sevilla also reached the last four with a 3-0 win at second-tier Mirandes, to earn a 5-0 aggregate triumph.

Vicente Iborra opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Juan Munoz added to the lead.

Coke secured the victory with an injury-time header.

They join holders Barcelona and Celta Vigo in Friday's semi-final draw after both advanced to the last four on Wednesday.

Real Madrid were disqualified for fielding an ineligible player in an earlier round.
