Malaga 0-1 Caraceno (Malaga 4-4 Caraceno aggregate; Malaga go through on away goals)
Manuel Pellegrini avoided having another embarrassing Copa Del Rey exit on his hands after just scraping through against third-tier Caraceno. The manager who famously oversaw Real Madrid's disastrous humiliation at the hands of Alcorcon saw winger Chapi give the Spanish minnows a chance of victory, and had to endure a nervy moment when they scored again, only for the goal to be ruled out through offside. In the end, Malaga hung on to only lose 1-0 - meaning they go through on away goals after their 4-3 victory in the first leg.
