ATLETICO MADRID 4-2 REAL MADRID

In a rollercoaster ride of a match, Atletico Madrid etched their names in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, snatching victory from the jaws of a familiar foe – Real Madrid. The Wanda Metropolitano pulsated with the heartbeats of 50,000 expectant souls, witnessing a tale woven with defensive blunders, moments of magic, and ultimately, sweet, sweet revenge.

Just eight days ago, the script seemed strangely similar. Another cup competition, another Madrid derby, another stalemate after 90 minutes. But in the Supercopa de Espana, it was Real Madrid who snatched the crown with two extra-time goals. Tonight, Atletico craved more than just parity. They craved justice.

And oh, how they delivered.

The Colchoneros struck first, Lino pouncing on a headed clearance to unleash a rocket past Lunin. But Atleti’s lead, fragile as a butterfly’s wing, vanished minutes later thanks to Oblak’s unfortunate fumble of Modric’s free-kick. The script, so cruel just a week ago, threatened to repeat itself.

But Simeone’s men, fueled by the ghosts of past injustices, refused to crumble. Morata, capitalizing on another Real Madrid defensive lapse, put them ahead, only for Rodrygo’s shot to cannon off the bar, then Joselu’s late header, to send shivers down the red and white spine.

Extra Time Magic

Extra time arrived, a tense tango between hope and despair. Then, Griezmann, Atletico’s prodigal son, conjured his magic. A dazzling solo run, leaving Vinicius for dead, culminated in a bullet of a shot that kissed the top corner. The Wanda erupted, a purging roar echoing through the night.

Riquelme, sprung by Depay, added another in the dying moments, the icing on a cake baked with grit, determination, and a dash of divine intervention. Simeone, usually a calm figure, sprinted onto the pitch, a jubilant dance that mirrored the emotions of every Atleti fan.

This wasn’t just a win. It was redemption. A sweet payback for the Supercopa heartbreak. A confirmation that, despite the La Liga points gap, their city rivals weren’t invincible. It was a night etched in red and white, a night whispered through the stands, a night that will forever be known as Atletico’s revenge, born in the crucible of extra time, under the watchful gaze of the Wanda Metropolitano.

And as the echoes of celebrations fade, one question remains: Can this Copa del Rey triumph spark a resurgence in Atletico’s La Liga campaign? Only time will tell, but for now, they savor the taste of victory, a taste sweeter than any Copa trophy, fueled by the fire of revenge and the unwavering spirit of the Colchoneros.
