Real Madrid 3-1 Atletico Madrid: Vinicius Jr among scorers as Real win Copa del Rey quarter-final

Rodrygo scores a goal for Real Madrid
Real Madrid have won the Copa del Rey on 19 occasions, but not since 2014, when they beat Barcelona 2-1 in the final

Real Madrid beat city rivals Atletico Madrid after extra time to advance to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Atletico took the lead with Alvaro Morata scoring from close range following Nahuel Molina’s low cross.

Real were 11 minutes from going out but equalised when Rodrygo beat three players and scored a wonderful goal.

Atletico’s Stefan Savic was sent off for two bookable offences, before Karim Benzema put Real ahead in the 104th minute with Vinicius Jr adding a third.

Benzema steered a low shot past Jan Oblak after the visitors had failed to deal with Marco Asensio’s low cross and Vinicius Jr sealed the victory as he passed the ball into the bottom corner after a fine run.

Alvaro Morata scores a goal for Atletico Madrid
Alvaro Morata began his career with Real and played a crucial role in their La Liga title triumph in 2016-17, then moved to Chelsea where he stayed three years before joining Atletico in 2020

Barcelona and Osasuna beat Real Sociedad and Sevilla respectively in their quarter-finals on Wednesday and Athletic Bilbao won 3-1 at Valencia on Thursday to join them in the semi-finals.

The draw for the final four will take place on Monday, 30 January with the first legs in early February and the second legs in the beginning of March, before the final on 6 May.

Earlier on Thursday, La Liga said it “strongly condemns acts of hatred and intimidation against Vinicius Jr” after an effigy of the Real Madrid winger was hung from a bridge near the club’s training ground.

A banner reading “Madrid hates Real” was attached to the bridge’s railings, with Atletico calling the incident “repugnant”.

Brazil international Vinicius Jr, 22, said last month the Spanish league had to act on racists attending games after a minority of Atletico fans sang racist songs aimed at the player before Real’s 2-1 win in September.
