Copa del Rey round-up: Atletico Madrid and Valencia progress

Yannick Carrasco helped Atletico see of Lleida

Atletico Madrid appears destined for the next round of the Copa del Rey, and it will look to polish off Lleida Esportiu in the second leg of their round-of-16 clash on Tuesday.

After bagging in his first two games, that means Costa has been involved in three goals since his second debut for the club.

Vitolo, who signed for Atletico in the summer, but has been playing on loan at Las Palmas due to Atletico's transfer ban, will definitely start this match.

On a freezing night, in a stadium that is likely to be half empty and with nearly the entire first team rested for a tie that is already practically won, a high tempo start from the hosts does not look on the cards.

Earlier, Cavusoglu said the country doesn't rule out a new military operation against YPG and PYD in Afrin. It has repeatedly condemned Washington's support for the YPG.

Atletico's only defeat in the 12 matches they have played in their new stadium in all competitions came against Chelsea in the Champions League back in September and that is unlikely to change on Tuesday.

10 minutes later, Diego Costa went close to scoring but the striker's effort was blocked by goalkeeper Rivas.

Playing in front of a sparsely populated Wanda Metropolitano, it took dominant Atletico until the 57th minute to extend their four-goal first-leg lead; Yannick Carrasco meeting Diego Costa's cutback and slotting home the opener.

"I have no doubt that Costa was the most important player that has played for Atletico in recent years", said the coach. "Hopefully I will remain with this kind of confidence". Nemanja Maksimovic got the other goal of the night.
