Real Madrid cruised in to this year’s cup final with a 5-0 aggregate win over city neighbours Atlético Madrid on Tuesday evening. The visitors were already three goals up from the first leg, and Simeone, already missing the suspended Diego Costa and the injured Villa, Filipe Luis and Tiago, decided to leave a couple of his key players on the bench as well. The tie was over as a contest however when Ronaldo converted two penalties in the first fifteen minutes to make it 0-2 on the night, the first after he was pushed over by Manquillo, and the second after Bale was tripped by Insúa. Makeshift centre-forward Raúl García hit the post in-between, and Koke and Cristian Rodríguez fired efforts just wide later in the first half, but after failing to beat their arch rivals in the Calderón stadium for the fourteenth game in a row, the faces of the local fans said it all. After the restart Aranzubia made a couple of good stops from Bale and Ronaldo, and Casillas pulled off the save of the tournament from Sosa near the end to keep up his unbeaten record in the competition (eight games and counting), but there were no further changes to the scoreline. The defending champions were out, and Madrid become the first side ever to reach a final without letting in a single goal. Their opponents in that match on 19 th April will be either Barcelona or Real Sociedad, the Catalans the favourites after winning the first leg 2-0.
