United States defender Oguchi Onyewu scored three minutes into injury time to secure Malaga a 1-1 draw at third-division Eibar in the first leg of their Copa del Rey last-16 match on Tuesday.
Onyewu jumped above two Eibar players to head a last-gasp free kick over Eibar goalkeeper Jon Altamira , who had unwisely rushed off this line.
Eibar, which eliminated Athletic Bilbao in the previous round , had gone ahead in the 74th with a goal from defender Txemi Anibarro .
The second leg will be played in Malaga on Jan. 8.
The winner moves on to face either Barcelona or Cordoba in the quarterfinals . Barcelona won 2-0 at Cordoba in the opening leg.
