Mallorca eliminates Real Sociedad on penalties and advances to the Copa del Rey final

The matches follow one another and are similar for Real Sociedad. Led from the start of the second half by Mallorca after a perfect header from Gio Gonzalez (50th) magnificently served by Jaume Costa, the Txuri-Urdinak even wasted the opportunity to open the scoring from the penalty spot in the first act (45th) , Brais Méndez failing against Dominik Greif. Harmless, as often this season, the Basques never endangered a rearguard largely accustomed to defensive games. At least not before the entry of their captain (63rd).

Absent from the field for three weeks, Mikel Oyarzabal only needed 8 minutes to wake up a timid Reale Arena of late, disappointed by recent performances (only one victory in the last 7 matches in all competitions). Despite everything, a cruel evening for the idol of San Sebastián who ended up coming up against Greif during the penalty shootout (4-5), after an extension which did not make it possible to decide between the two teams. Mallorca will try in the final to win a new Spanish Cup after that of 2003, against Atlético de Madrid or Athletic Bilbao. For Real, they will have to endure this serious setback before hosting PSG in a week, in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League.
