Atlético start their route in the Copa del Rey at Camp Municipal Narcís Sala in Sant Andreu. Gabi is suspended after getting sent off in the final last season while Courtois is out with a slight injury which'll most likely just keep him out of this game. Mario is still recovering from the injury he picked up against Osasuna back in September. Juanfran is being rested.

0-2 at HT. A game in which Atlético should've been up a goal or two more. Raúl García gave the lead after Filipe found him with a tremendous cross and Manquillo got himself an assist as well when he played the ball back to Arda who made it 0-2. Solid performance. What really matters is to seal the deal here.

ATLÉTICO DE MADRID: Aranzubia; Manquillo, Alderweireld, Giménez, Insúa; Guilavogui, Carlos Ramos, Óliver Torres, Cebolla Rodríguez; Adrián and Léo Baptistão.

Simeone is actually starting with Carlos Ramos instead of Gabi which is really interesting. It also means more responsability for Óliver and from what I've heard from the people that were on yesterdays training session, it's a 4-3-3.

Carlos Ramos plays for Atlético C and has been really good there while also impressing in a friendly during the last international break. There's also Héctor Hernández on the bench who's one hell of a goalscorer that came from Las Palmas Juvenil A before the Copa-final in May and a DM in Nana.

Héctor scored his first goal for Atleti ever :worship: The guy is just crazy in the penalty area, always finds a way to score. Will be one hell of a striker once he's matured as a player. Watched him bag two against Porto in the Youth League-games last week as well. A special night for him because he always wanted to play for Atlético and turned down Mandril as well as Premier League-clubs to fullfill his dream. This is the reward. Las Palmas will get €750,000 since he debuted btw.

Btw, cool to see the team taking this seriously in the final 15 minutes of the game and winning. Happy for Toby as well. His passing ability is great.

Óliver best player on the pitch by a country mile.

Adrián hopeless infront of goal and Léo Baptistão is most likely going on loan after this performance.

Hilarious to see how Gabi's entrance changed the players view on the game though. Capitán :proud: :D

Impotencia's been knocked out. They turned into Violencia after they conceded their second goal :howler:

Seriously though, Courtois tie all over..and Guaita is horrendous in the aerial game. We smashed them in the air and scored all three goals on set-pieces. Such an important thing in modern football.

Raúl García continues scoring goals. He's crazy.

Starting 11 for the return leg to take on Athletic Bilbao.

Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Filipe, Gabi, Koke, Cebolla, Raúl García, Adrián & Diego Costa.

Arda Turan was ruled out with an injury along with Tiago and Villa is rested.

Match starts at 2000 CET and Atletico leads the 2 legged encounter with a single goal.

Adrián's inclusion is surprising. The rest is anticipated.

Will be really hard. Athletic are wonderful at home.

A different Atleti in the second half and the final score was 1-2 with goals from Raul Garcia & Diego Costa.

Atletico is the first away team to win at San Mames and progresses to the semis.

Grande Atleti :proud:

What a second half. And Athletic's first loss at home since they changed stadiums.

Without Filipe, Arda, Tiago..

It's a shame Atlético didn't match Madrid in terms of intensity and aggressiveness. We lost a lot of things that way. Then again, it's really hard to win a game when you score two own goals. Next to impossible. It's been a on going theme with Atleti this year every time we've lost points, certainly the two times we've lost our games. Still 90 minutes left and Almería comng up in the league.

I know they're the eternal enemy and all, but really, the Copa return leg should now be a merciful rest for the starters as this team will not in another ten years get such a good opportunity to win the league. That should be the entire focus right now, I would say forget Milan in the CL too, you might win that even giving 80-70%, who knows, the CL is a lottery anyway, the league is the one you can best plan for.
