Valencia edge past Sevilla

Valencia claimed a 1-0 win at home to Sevilla to take a slender advantage into the second leg of their Copa del Rey fifth-round tie.

Brazilian forward Jonas scored the only goal of the game in the 33rd minute to put Valencia in the driving seat in the all-Primera Division encounter.

In the night's other game, second-tier Cordoba served up a surprise by defeating ten-man Espanyol 2-1.

Primera Division outfit Espanyol were leading thanks to Sergio Garcia's 38th-minute strike when goalkeeper Francisco Casilla was sent off for a foul on Jose Diaz in the box.

Substitute goalkeeper Cristian Alvarez looked like being Espanyol's hero when he saved Diaz's resulting penalty kick, but Cordoba mounted a late rally to stun their visitors.

Borja Garcia's deflected 81st-minute strike started the fightback, and the win was sealed in the 85th minute when Carlos Caballero fired home.

The second legs of both of matches will be played on Wednesday.
