Malaga came from behind to win 4-1 and advance 5-2 on aggregate against third-tier club Eibar in the round-of-16 of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday.

Ruben Arroyo opened the scoring for Eibar in the 11th minute when he pounced on a ball that Malaga goalkeeper Idriss Kameni had punched out after Mikel Arrubarrena had hit a powerful shot from outside the penalty area.

A neatly-timed combination with Javier Saviola allowed Diego Buonanotte to score in the 74th, before Sebastian Fernandez tapped in a cross two minutes later.

Defender Nacho Monreal penetrated the penalty area before crossing for Francisco Portillo to score in the 82nd.


Eibar substitute Guillermo Roldan was sent off with a straight red card in the 86th for a challenge on Buonanotte, who scored his second in injury time.
