Real Sociedad made up for an embarrassing league loss to Villarreal by winning at its rival 1-0 to reach the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey.

Villarreal routed Sociedad 5-1 at its El Madrigal Stadium on Monday, but three days later the Basques secured passage into the last eight following a scoreless first leg.

Javi Ros put Real in command with a valuable away goal in the 32nd minute, stabbing home a loose ball from inside the box after goalkeeper Juan Carlos Sanchez made the initial save on Xabi Prieto.

Real moves on to face third-tier Racing Santander in the knockout competition.

Later Thursday, Barcelona traveled to Getafe holding a 4-0 advantage after the first leg.
