Mirandes put in a superb home performance to beat Villarreal 4-2 and eliminate the Yellow Submarine from the Copa del Rey, with Martin Merquelanz emerging as the star of the show.

The on-loan Real Sociedad winger played a part in all four Mirandes goals, assisting three and scoring one from the penalty spot.

Each assist was different, too, as he helped open the scoring by rising above his marker to flick on a header for Matheus to run through and score with composure. Then, for his second, he sent a teasing cross into the box from a free kick for Odei Onaindia to slide home.

HIs third was arguably the best of the bunch, though, as he found himself with just the goalkeeper to beat, only to unselfishly square to the right for Antonio Sanchez to pass into the empty net.
