Result: Mirandes 2-1 Espanyol

Spanish third-tier club Mirandes shock Espanyol in the Copa Del Rey to book a place in the semi-final.

Espanyol have been shocked by third-tier side Mirandes after the minnows recorded a famous 2-1 victory to book a semi-final place in the Copa Del Rey on the away goals rule.

Heading into the game, Mirandes were trailing 3-2 after the first leg in Barcelona and few had given Carlos Pouso's side a chance of progressing.

After a goalless first half, Mirandes seemed to be heading out of the competition as Rui Fonte put Espanyol ahead within two minutes of the restart.

Pouso's team responded magnificently and Pablo Infante pulled a goal back in the 59th minute to give the Mirandes fans hopes of an upset.

Espanyol looked as if they would progress but the La Liga side were stunned in the final minute as Cesar Caneda fired home to produce one of the most memorable Copa Del Rey moments in recent history.
