Atletico Madrid secured a memorable victory over their fierce rivals, Real Madrid, in the Copa del Rey tie held at the Estadio Metropolitano. The 4-2 win allowed them to get some revenge for their recent Supercopa de Espana loss. The hosts scored goals through Alvaro Morata, Samuel Lino, Antoine Griezmann, and Rodrigo Riquelme.
For Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid, the defeat was disappointing, but it is not a season-ending disaster as they are still well placed in both the Champions League and LaLiga EA SPORTS.
Real Madrid had difficulty taking their chances and were outclassed by Atletico Madrid, who had more shots on goal. Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Jr. had opportunities to score, but were unable to convert. Atleti found themselves under pressure, but Samuel Lino’s goal against the run of play gave them the lead. Real Madrid equalized before half-time, with a bizarre own goal from Jan Oblak. Alvaro Morata then put Atletico Madrid ahead, only for Joselu to level the score for Real Madrid.
In extra time, Antoine Griezmann and Rodrigo Riquelme scored for Atletico Madrid, securing their victory over Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey.
The win gives Atletico Madrid an excellent chance of winning another trophy under Simeone’s management.
