It's Ancelotti vs. Simeone - again!

Atlético Madrid travel the short distance to the Bernabeu this evening where they take on Real Madrid in the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash.

Leading 2-0 from the first bout last week, Atleti know another strong performance is needed if they are to advance through to the next round, where a tough tie against Barcelona (probably) awaits.

    El nino 😀

  • Chewie

    Siqueira is good, Oblak is panicking, I’d rather see Moya instead. And a wonderful debut goal by Torres.

  • Sri lankan fan here

    greizman is the key player of atletico when itz come to attacking

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    We need concentration when we’re on the ball and stop losing possession so cheaply

  • Sri lankan fan here

    atletico need to buy a midfielder who can keep possession..koke alone can’t do it.. having possession also a good way of defending!

  • Mohammed Basith

    did anyone noticed Mario dribbling RM players one by one :’)

  • Parsa

    I’m happy to see an old mario, he is reading the game really well and has made so many interceptions, and a crucial block.

  • Brad

    The problem of being a fan of a team an ocean away while having a real job…can only follow the game here not streaming

  • Mohammed Basith

    2 goals at Santiago worth 100mil I’d say.

  • Sri lankan fan here

    if atleti played with mandzkic these 2 goals wont be scored! he is no pacy and running like torres! torres and griezman is amazing combo

  • Big issue for me me too. 🙁

  • Can anyone, please, tell me where Pepe is going to? 😀 What a shame, Pepe..

  • Mohammed Basith

    Is there anyone here who still wanna sell Super Mario?
    I dare you,I double dare you.

  • Max Huber

    I´m just happy! Especially about the goals from Torres! If he has a good key player behind him I was sure he will score again!

  • we have him, Arda Turan
    and if we need another one, there is our boy in Porto, Oliver Torres

  • Torres scored, TWICE, we didn’t lose, and Real Madrid with their vote-for-your-friends trophies are knocked out
    But yet I’m still a little upset, we wasted a golden opportunity to achieve 4 wins in a row in the derby, something that NEVER happened in our history .. that’s how great This Atleti is

    Cholismo is a way of life
