Copa del Rey: Griezmann and Atlético Madrid win against Sevilla and reach the semi-finals

Atlético Madrid joins the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey after their quarter-final victory this Thursday evening against Sevilla FC (1-0). Memphis Depay found the fault at the end of the match (79th) while Antoine Griezmann, before the half-hour mark (26th), completely missed a penalty. The Colchoneros join the last four and will wait for the draw to find out which opponent they will face.

During the first 20 minutes, Sevilla was more enterprising than its opponent and almost threatened a jostled Atleti, until a major play which revived the Colchoneros. Molina is hit in the area and the referee indicates the penalty spot. Antoine Griezmann takes care of it and approaches his 176th goal in red and white. But the top scorer in Atletico's history slipped, and sent his attempt over the crossbar of a miraculous Nyland. After this miss, the first period was not much better and the teams returned to the locker room with a goalless score.

But on their return to the pitch, the Rojiblancos moved up a gear and stifled a disoriented Sevilla team. Diego Simeone made the strong, but profitable, choice to bring out a Griezmann lacking inspiration, and a ghostly Morata. In their places, come Correa and Memphis Depay. Winning coaching since the Argentinian is the passer on the only goal of the game, scored by the former Lyon player. The end of the match could have taken a completely different turn if Mr. Menzano, referee of the match, had awarded the penalty requested by the Andalusians. But ultimately nothing, and Atleti goes into the semi-finals.
