Copa del Rey, Fifth Round: Barca cruises, Betis survives

David Ramos

Barcelona had no troubles seeing off Cordoba, while Real Betis survived a close tie against Las Palmas.

Here's a recap of today's action from the final day of Copa de Rey fifth round play.

Getafe 0-0 (0-3) Atletico Madrid

Getafe's already slim chances of a comeback were thwarted in the 33rd minute when defender Rafael López Gómez was shown a straight red card. With a three goal lead and a man advantage, Atletico seemed perfectly content to just see out the match and advance to the next round.

Barcelona 5-0 (7-0) Cordoba

Defending Copa de Rey champions Barcelona cruised in to the quarterfinals with a 5-0 demolition of Cordoba. Thiago opened the scoring for Barca while David Villa and Alexis Sánchez both added a brace. The match ended on a bit on a down note for Tito Vilanova as Villa was forced to leave with a hamstring injury.

Real Betis 1-0 (2-1) Las Palmas

A goal in the 85th minute by Real Betis's Rubén put the final nail in second division side Las Palmas hopes of pulling off the unlikely upset. Las Palmas came close a couple times to grabbing an away goal, including a chance with three minutes left in the match that was headed just over the cross bar. Las Palmas defender Enrique Corrales was sent off in stoppage time after being shown a second yellow card.

With all of the fifth round matches now complete, here are the quarterfinal match-ups that are scheduled to be played over the next two weeks. The quarterfinals are a two-leg home and home tie.
