The former Manchester United manager took a seat high in the stands at the Anoeta and smiled as he accepted the offer of a crisp from one of the home supporters. He was far from happy with what was happening on the pitch below, though. Having lost the first leg 1-0, Moyes’ men needed to win to progress. So when you have some FIFA 15 coins, then you can play well in FIFA 15.
Carlos Vela’s opener had been cancelled out by a stunning shot from Gerard Moreno and Giovani Dos Santos then put Villarreal 2-1 up on the night. Esteban Granero equalised for Real 15 minutes from time, but soon after Moyes then lost his temper and was shown a red card. As Moyes watched from above, Mateo Musacchio was sent off for Villarreal, but the damage had already been done and the Yellow Submarine went through with a 3-2 aggregate win.
Villarreal will play Getafe in the quarter-finals after they beat Almeria 1-0 on Wednesday night. Alvaro Vazquez rounded Julian with 16 minutes left to give Getafe a 2-1 aggregate victory.
Athletic Club also moved into the last eight after scraping through on away goals against Celta Vigo. Xabier Etxeitia scored an own goal just after half-time and Fabian Orellana converted a penalty to put Celta 2-0 up on the night and level at 4-4 on aggregate. But Eduardo Berizzo’s men could not find a third so they crashed out of the competition.
In Wednesday’s late match, Sevilla hammered Andalusian neighbours Granada 4-0 to progress to a quarter-final meeting with Espanyol. Kevin Gameiro scored twice while Iago Aspas and Denis Suarez also found the net to give the Nervionenses a 6-1 aggregate win.
