LONDON --- Manchester City
booked their place in the Capital
One Cup semi-finals, but the 4-
1 scoreline flattered them some-
what against Championship
An early goal from Wilfried
Bony should have been the plat-
form for a comfortable win, but
it was not until a strike from 19-
year-old substitute Kelechi
Iheanacho and a Kevin De Bruyne
brace in the last 10 minutes that
the match was wrapped up.
Hull left-back Andrew Robert-
son scored an even later conso-
lation but, in truth, three-time
winners City were not really
stretched at any point, with their
superior fitness taking effect in
the latter stages.
Gerard Deulofeu turned in a
master-class to send Everton into
the semifinals with a 2-0 victory
and fulfil Middlesbrough boss
Aitor Karanka s prophecy.
Spaniard Karanka worked with
compatriot Deulofeu as a 14-
year-old during his time as a
national youth coach, and tipped
him for the top all those years
He found himself on the
receiving end at the Riverside
yesterday as the midfielder
opened the scoring with a stun-
ning solo effort and then provided
the ammunition for Romelu
Lukaku to head the visitors into
a 2-0 lead with just 28 minutes
gone - and that is the way it fin-
ished - in front of a largely shell-
shocked crowd of 31,628.
Stoke eased into the semi-
finals as goals from Ibrahim Afel-
lay and substitute Phil Bardsley
secured a comfortable 2-0 home
victory over Sheffield Wednes-
Afellay put the Potters ahead
in the 30th minute, the summer
signing registering his first goal
for the club with a delightfully-
Bardsley then smashed home
a low effort from outside the box
in the 75th minute - also opening
his Potters goalscoring account

BARCELONA --- Atletico Madrid fought back for a
2-1 win at third-division side Reus in their opening
match of the Copa del Rey yesterday.
Reus fans burst into celebration after half an hour
when Fran Carbia pressured defender Lucas Fernandez
into losing the ball before he put it past goalkeeper
Miguel Moya. Both Fernandez and Moya were making
their first appearances this season.
The hosts lead, however, lasted only seven minutes
before striker Luciano Vietto headed home Oliver
Torres then provided a corner kick for Saul Niguez
to head over goalkeeper Edgar Badia, who got a hand
on the ball but couldn t keep it out of his net in the
"The tie is close, this isn t a comfortable result,"
Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "Reus is a com-
petitive, well-organised side. You can see that in the
Also, 10-man Granada lost 2-1 at second-division
side Leganes, but Fran Rico s second-half strike gives
the topflight team an away goal for the second leg.
Guillermo Fernandez opened the scoring and Omar
Ramos added a second goal for Leganes after Granada s
Ruben Perez earned a direct red card in the 23rd when
his arm apparently hit an opposing player in the face.
"We were really bad in the first half," Rico said. "I
take away our second half when we played with more
focus and got the goal we needed."
The return legs of the round-of-32 series will be in
PARIS --- Paris Saint-Germain dropped points in
the French league for only the third time this season
after being held at newly promoted Angers to an
entertaining 0-0 draw yesterday.
Chasing a fourth straight league title, PSG remains
unbeaten in the league with 13 wins and three draws.
Angers had chances to end an unbeaten league run
dating to March 15, with 1.92-metre midfielder Cheick
N Doye causing problems in the air for PSG s defense.
Still, the clearest chances fell to PSG, as striker Edin-
son Cavani hit the post with an early glancing header
and fluffed a late chance with only goalkeeper Ludovic
Butelle to beat.
Star signing Angel di Maria had a quiet game,
although he also hit the post in the first half.
PSG was provisionally 14 points ahead of Caen,
which plays at Monaco today, and 15 ahead of third-
Angers showed why it has the second best defensive
record behind PSG --- nine goals conceded in 16 games
--- with a tenacious display against a star-studded
Elsewhere, league top-scorer Benjamin Moukandjo
failed to add to his 11 goals as Lorient drew 0-0 at
home to Nice.
There were no goals in the other match, either, as
Nantes drew 0-0 with fourth-place Lyon, which trails
PSG by 16 points.
