MADRID: Second Division Terrassa scored twice in the last nine minutes to claim a 3-3 draw at home to asecond string Real Madrid side on Wednesday and stay in with a chance of making the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup. 

Real coach Vicente del Bosque chose to rest the entire starting line-up from the weekend’s 4-1 win over Valencia in the Spanish league but the visitors were still able to take the lead with a Javier Portillo penalty. 

Haruna Babangida, on loan from Barcelona, equalised on 63 minutes but Real pulled clear with a double from Guti.  

Monty then got in front of the Real defence to convert a Pedro Riesco cross on 81 minutes and the Catalan midfielder levelled the scores three minutes later with a header.  

Osasuna made virtually certain of a place in the quarter-finals with a 4-0 stroll away to Real Union de Irun. 

Sevilla are well placed after beating Numancia 3-1 away, while Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 win at Xerez should be enough to see them through in the second leg at the Calderon. 

The two all-First Division ties finished with honours even after the first leg, with Real Mallorca drawing 2-2 at home to Valladolid and Recreativo Huelva claiming a goalless draw away to Real Betis. – Reuters
