Goals from Isco and substitute Roque Santa Cruz were enough to give the Spaniards a 2-1 aggregate triumph over their Portuguese opponents.

Malaga levelled the aggregate score minutes before half time when Isco smashed home a powerful effort into the top corner from 20 yards.

The away side were reduced to 10 men at the start of the second half as Steven Defour picked up his second yellow card of the contest for a challenge on Joaquin.

The hosts secured their passage into the quarter-finals in the 77th minute when Santa Cruz headed in just seconds after coming off the bench.
