Onyewu's injury-time goal saves Malaga
EIBAR, Spain -- American defender Oguchi Onyewu scored three minutes into second-half injury time, giving Malaga a 1-1 tie at third-tier Eibar on Tuesday night in the first leg of their Copa del Rey fifth-round matchup.
Onyewu jumped above two Eibar players to head a free kick over goalkeeper Jon Altamira, who had rushed off this line.
Eibar, which eliminated Athletic Bilbao in the fourth round, had gone ahead on defender Txemi Anibarro's goal in the 74th minute. The second leg will be played at Malaga on Jan. 8, and the winner plays defending champion Barcelona or Cordoba in the quarterfinals.
Onyewu's other goal this season was in a fourth-round match against Cacereno on Oct. 31.
