The Copa del Rey returns to the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday. Our team will look to qualify for the Copa del Rey quarter-finals against Girona following the 1-1 draw at Montilivi. The match is to be played at 7.30 p.m. CET.
Simeone's earned a 1-1 draw in the first leg thanks to a Griezmann shot that struck the crossbar and ended up in the back of the net after rebounding on keeper Gorka Iraizoz. The result gives a slight edge to Atleti, which we will try to use in order to qualify for the quarter-finals. It will be the second consecutive game at the Wanda Metropolitano after Sunday's LaLiga clash against Levante, which we won 1-0 thanks to a goal from our number 7.
Girona haven't lost any of their last four games, three of which have been played in LaLiga and one in the Copa del Rey. Eusebio Sacristán's side currently sit eighth in the league. The Catalan team have earned three wins and five draws in their ten away matches so far this season, having lost only at Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla.
