Copa del Rey: Portugalete 1-1 Getafe

Getafe couldn't hold their early lead in their first leg 1/16 round Copa del Rey clash against Portugalete, eventually managing only a 1-1 draw away to the Basque minnows.

reserve star Adrián Sardinero tapping in Juan Angel Albín's cross after good work from Pedro Mosquera. (Fun fact: Sardinero has scored at La Florida before, netting for the reserves in June as Getafe B ousted Portugalete in the play-offs to reach the Segunda División B.)

Although Getafe enjoyed the best of the first half, Portugalete were well worth their draw, which they earned seven minutes after the break, Gaizka Bergara eventually burying Javier Iturriaga's corner.

The rematch is in two weeks' time. This weekend: another trip up to the Basque Country to face Athletic Bilbao.
