Diego Simeone’s side, Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Copa del Rey last-16 clash at Vicente Calderon with goals of Raul Garcia and Jose Gimenez inflicted Los Blancos’ third defeat in a row. First half did not gave us a lot to see, but the second half in which the big guns were introduced as Cristiano Ronaldo burst into life. Still, the home side managed to smash two past Navas and the Los Colchoneros gain a big advantage in the first leg match and Real Madrid will face a tough task scoring at least 2 and not conceding any in the second leg match.
