Whatever, David Moyes was sent off as Real Sociedad crashed out of the Copa del Rey following a 2-2 home draw against Villarreal. Moyes, unhappy that a number of decisions had gone against his team, argued with referee Carlos Carballo Velasco with nine minutes to go and was ordered to the stands after gesturing that the official needed glasses.
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.
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.

Since EA revealed the full line up of FIFA 15 Team of the Year, the first patch of defenders and goalkeeper are available now. The other ones will be out on the later days. It is a big update in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. So many of FIFA 15 players are hunger for these blue cards, but only some players have been lucky enough to pick out the new rare cards. Well, we are wondering how will people react to the TOTY packs.
If you haven’t heard yet, Neuer was chosen as the goalkeeper, while the defenders are Ramos, Lahm, Silva and Luiz. Someone says that David Luiz is a surprise inclusion, as many thought that Alves may be selected again.
Elsewhere, though it is not really a surprise. There’s no Luiz Suarez which is controversial, but nobody can argue with the players that have been selected, especially the forwards.
You get the chance to win the special new TOTY defenders and Neuer inside FIFA 15 Packs. Here is a fan’s picture that retweeted by EA, seemingly confirming that he is the first one to get Neuer TOTY in a pack before anyone else. See, he is so excited.
These ultra rare cards are going to be available until Wednesday and the time for midfielders for UK is 6pm GMT on the same day. This is the time when Defenders and Goalkeeper will end and the midfielders will begin. That means the moment when TOTY cards for Di Maria, Kroos, Iniesta and Robben will be available.
For US players, the midfielders should be available in the game at around 10 am Pacific Time or 1pm Eastern Time. Don’t forget to grab the cards. The Robben card should be amazing.
