Sevilla - Atletico Madrid set up a King's Cup final with city rivals Real after
Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao scored in a 2-2 second leg draw at
Sevilla on Wednesday, to progress 4-3 on aggregate.
Costa, who had scored both Atletico goals from the penalty spot in the
first leg, put the visitors in charge after carving an opening for
himself in the sixth minute and firing low into the far corner.
His seventh goal in the Cup made him the competition's leading scorer
this season, one ahead of Real's Cristiano Ronaldo and Sevilla striker
The Brazilian striker then broke away down the left and crossed low for
Colombia's Falcao, who darted in front of his marker to score in the
Roared on by a noisy home crowd, Sevilla's most dangerous player Jesus
Navas breathed life back in to the tie with a curling shot which went in
off the far post just before the break.
Sevilla, who beat Atletico 2-0 in the 2010 Cup final, pressed hard in
the second half but did not find a way past Thibaut Courtois again until
Ivan Rakitic scored in time added on.
By then, Sevilla had lost their cool with Gary Medel being sent off 14
minutes from time, and Geoffrey Kondogbia was red-carded at the end,
both for fouls on Costa.
Nine-times Cup winners Atletico will meet their neighbours Real in the
May 18 final after Jose Mourinho's men swept past holders Barcelona on
Tuesday to secure a 4-2 aggregate victory.
