Ocampos the hero as Sevilla defeat Leganes in Copa del Rey

Sevilla have reached the last 16 of the Copa del Rey after victory against Leganes in extra time.

The tie was initially in doubt because of the impact of Storm Filomena on Madrid in the past couple of weeks, with heavy snowfall in the Spanish capital.

As a result, the match was moved from Butarque to Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano, which had already held a LaLiga Santander game the previous Tuesday.

Julen Lopetegui made plenty of changes for the game, with Yassine Bounou, Diego Carlos and Joan Jordan the only regular starters in the team.

It was substitute Lucas Ocampos who settled the tie, which had gone to extra time after a goalless draw in normal time.

The Argentine raced onto a pass from Oliver Torres before slotting the winning goal past Asier Riesgo in the Leganes net.
