SPANISH CUP - COPA DEL REY ( KINGS CUP ) FINAL RESULT | REAL MADRID INTO THE FINAL

Real Madrid has sealed its place in this seasons Spanish Cup - Copa del Rey ( Kings Cup ) Final after defeating Atletico de Madrid 0 - 2 tonight in the 2º leg semi-final match. The overall aggregate of 5-0 to Real Madrid would disappoint most Atletico de Madrid followers but the real damage was done in the 1ºst leg game last week.

Atletico de Madrid kind of accepted that a turnaround would be almost impossible & fielded a team with only two regular players, Koke & Miranda, assuming that the real battles would be up ahead in the future. Coach Simeone has now put his objectives in Liga & in attempting to go as far as possible in Champions League.

Real Madrid on the other hand has sufficient resources to give Isco & Varane a start & the team did not notice the absence of those they replaced. The depth of talent is such that Real Madrid can concentrate & attempt to win all  three season titles as their super budget obliges them to do so.

The match was over in the 16th min. Real Madrid went up 2 - 0 with two penalties scored by Cristiano Ronaldo in the 6th min & in the 16th min. From here it was a more relaxed attitude from Real Madrid which kept the flow thinking in their upcoming appointments of Liga & Champions League. Young defender Rafael Varane in after a lengthy stint sidelined with his knee problem was able to test his fitness & by the looks of things it all went Ok. 


Atletico de Madrid pulled from pride & attempted to at least score to give their home fans something to cheer about but the "non-starters" have not enough playing time together to really dent the "armour" of their arch rivals. They tried until the last minute but they knew in their heads that they would front bigger & much more important battles in the coming weeks & months. 

Tomorrow Real Sociedad - FC Barcelona in the other 2º leg semi-final. The aggregate is 0 - 2 in Barça favour & it is possible that Real Sociedad can turn this around. A game not to be missed!
