Alaves advance to last-four of Copa Del Rey

Deportivo Alavés booked a place in the semi-final stage of the Copa del Rey after a 0-0 draw against Alcoron at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Tuesday.

The stalemate between the 12th placed La Liga side and the 15th placed second-tier outfit sees Mauricio Pellegrino's men advance on a 2-0 aggregate score.

Ibai Gomes dramatic late double in the first-leg, after coming on as a stoppage time substitute was enough to see his side through.

The vistors would have felt a reason to be aggrieved after their exit from the competition after making a good account of themselves against the top-flight side – boasting more possession as their goalkeeper Dani Jiménez was a mere spectator during the fixture.

Nonetheless, the victory will see Babazorros El Glorioso drawn against either Real Madrid, Celta Vigo or Real Sociedad in the last-four.
