Getafe advances to cup semifinals despite loss

Getafe advanced to the Copa del Rey semifinals despite losing to Mallorca 1-0 on Thursday.
Aritz Aduritz made up for an earlier penalty miss with a headed goal in the 45th minute to even the series 2-2 on aggregate, but Getafe's two away goals from the first leg were enough to put it through.
Getafe will play Sevilla in a rematch of the 2007 final, which Sevilla won.
Getafe goalkeeper Oscar Ustari stopped Aduritz's penalty on the half hour but couldn't stop the Basque striker's header two minutes into first-half stoppage time as he got high over his marker to turn in the corner kick.
Atletico Madrid traveled to second-division Celta Vigo later Thursday with their series tied 1-1 after the first leg. That winner will face Racing Santander, which beat Osasuna 3-0 on Wednesday to advance 5-1 overall.
Sevilla beat Deportivo La Coruna 3-1 on aggregate despite a 1-0 defeat on Wednesday.
