Huesca sprang a mighty upset with a 3-2 victory over Villarreal in the Copa del Rey round-of-32 first leg.

Despite struggling near the foot of the Segunda Division, Huesca inflicted an embarrassing defeat on their high-flying La Liga opponents.

They took the lead twice before Darwin Machis struck the winner in the 76th minute of a pulsating encounter before Christian Fernandez was sent off in injury-time.

Athletic Bilbao made light work of Linense, emerging comfortable 2-0 winners.

Two first-half goals from Sola and Aymeric Laporte in the space of six minutes were enough for Bilbao, who sit fourth in La Liga, to see off the minnows.

Mart Roger netted an 84th-minute winner as Levante and Espanyol fought out a 1-1 stalemate.

Mamadou Sylla had fired Espanyol into a first-half lead, only for Roger to save the first-leg encounter.

The Segunda Division was able to celebrate another upset of top-flight opposition when Mirandes sank Malaga 2-1.

Lago Junior was on hand to supply the 70th-minute winner for the underdogs after the round-of-32 rivals had exchanged goals in a finely-poised match.

And La Liga was humbled for a third time on a busy night of cup action when Eibar crashed to a 3-0 rout by Ponferradina.

Luka Djordjevic and William Jebor gave the second-tier club a 2-0 half-time lead before Dmytro Khomchenovskiy completed a memorable evening.

Hernan struck the second-half winner as Las Palmas beat Real Sociedad 2-1.
