The third derby against Rayo Vallecano, first at the Calderón, provided an interesting match that was worth the pass to the King’s Cup quarter-finals. The advantage was on our side thanks to Saúl’s goal in Vallecas, and we had to push to score a goal to increase our options. And the truth is that the goal took its time to arrive, but it was a marvel from Correa. The Argentinian received from Carrasco and removed the cobwebs of Rayo’s goal with a powerful drive. And could have closed the match in the final stretch but the Correa’s pass didn't reach Jackson because a defender cleared it.

In the second half, we only needed to close the match and the qualifying round. Jackson Martínez was on the verge of scoring but Yoel avoided it. Thomas also tried, but it was Griezmann who put the icing on the cake to the fixture shortly after entering the field to put Atlético de Madrid in the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup. There was time for the French to score his second goal in the Cup and the match for the final and overwheming 3-0. This Friday, the draw at the Football City of Las Rozas.
