Typical Cup match, with an Atlético that took the initiative and an Eibar that was trying to surprise in the counterattack. After a couple of warnings to the goal defended by Yoel, a goal was disallowed for an offside by Savic. A little later, in a set piece play, Griezmann opened the score after taking advantage of a header from Giménez to Koke's cross.
In the second half, Atlético was trying to have a bigger advantage for the second leg. Thus, in only eight minutes, Correa and Gameiro increased the advantage with two goals that knocked out the away team. Atlético continued attacking trying to increase its advantage for the second leg. On Wednesday, at Ipurua, the second and final match of these King’s Cup quarter-finals.
