      HALF-TIME! Goalless at the break, and Atletico will be content with that. As Simeone's men are already three goals to the good from the first leg, the visitors will just be happy to have navigated their way to the interval without any significant incident. Chances have been few and far between, with

      Jose Mendilibar's men side have to pick themselves up quickly after a 4-0 LaLiga drubbing against Barcelona at the weekend, contributing to a three-game winless run at home in the Spanish top-flight. Given that Eibar have been great at Ipurua over the course of the campaign, they are yet to triumph

      Hello and welcome to the second leg of Eibar's Copa del Rey quarter-final tie against Atletico Madrid, with Diego Simeone's men holding a 3-0 lead from the opening fixture. It will take something special to turn this one around, but the hosts did manage to overturn a similar deficit in this competit
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first half! Eibar need to score at least three times to stand a chance of progressing into the next round, with Atletico on the hunt for an away goal that would probably kill the hosts' belief of causing a cup upset.
    • 3'
      Yoel is forced to make the first save of the game, with Correa shooting straight down the goalkeeper's throat. Nano races down the right-hand side and flights in a looping cross, but the away side clear their lines. Bebe curls in a cross from the left, after wrongfooting Juanfran, but Gimenez heads
    • 5'
      Eibar have tried to go on the offensive in the early minutes, with Nano keen to get involved. Given that Josue and Sarriegui haven't played too much for the first-team as of now, that naivety could help the hosts to kick on and play without fear.
    • 7'
      Atletico win themselves a corner on the right-hand side, which is guiding in by Gabi, but Torres can only head a long way wide of the far post. The Spanish striker really needs to find a goal soon, as Simeone's forward line have been disappointing over the last couple of months - he could prove hims
    • 9'
      Neither side have managed to get into their stride quite yet, with a few poor passes showing some rustiness. Gameiro and Correa combine on the edge of the penalty area, before Gaitan shapes to shoot just inside the box, but the Argentine is denied by Galvez. The Spanish centre-back slides a pass bac
    • 11'
      Bebe feeds a pass into Josue, who spins off and shoots from around 20 yards out, but the debutant blasts high and wide of the target! Moya is yet to have anything to do at Ipurua. Moments later, Bebe attempts to scamper down the left, but Juanfran makes a good tackle to spark an Atletico break. The
    • 13'
      Atletico work their way down the right, but a cross from Juanfran sails way over the danger zone. The final ball hasn't quite been there for either side during this opening quarter of an hour, with the likes of Nano and Gameiro feeding off scraps. Correa tries his luck with a speculative volley from
    • 15'
      Fran Rico picks up the first yellow card of the contest, after catching Gabi in the face with his forearm. That looked like quite a sore one.
    • 17'
      Gameiro has had the best opportunity to burst into the penalty area, but the Frenchman was quickly closed down while trying to open his body up to shoot. Ruben Pena did well to cover across. This has been quite an even, open game so far.
    • 19'
      Atletico are more than happy to take their time in possession and over throw-ins, as they already have a comfortable cushion on aggregate. Clear-cut chances have been few and far between, but the away side have not been afraid of trying their luck from range. Yoel has been more of a ball-boy than a
    • 21'
      Capa tries to feed a pass down the line for Josue, who combines well with the young midfielder. The latter manages to find his right-back with a cute back-heel pass, before a left-footed cross from Capa is gathered up simply by Moya. Nano isn't getting any good service.
    • 23'
      Gaitan has the chance to bend in a free-kick from deep on the right-hand side, but his delivery is flicked into the gloves of Yoel. A long kick from the goalkeeper is brought down well by Bebe, who then drives inside at pace. The Portuguese forward shoots from long-range, but disappointingly drags t
    • 25'
      Eibar work their way down the right-hand side, with Capa driving forward. Josue tries to swing in another cross from out wide, but Savic protects his near post well. The hosts maintain their pressure, but can't seem to play a dangerous, incisive pass through Atletico's lines. An opening goal looks u
    • 27'
      Eibar win themselves a free-kick on the left, which is played into the box by Bebe. His delivery is immediately half-cleared, with Josue meeting the rebound. The young wide man shoots from 25 yards, forcing a brilliant save out of Moya! He wins a corner as a result, but it comes to nothing.
    • 29'
      Atletico haven't been able to string many dangerous attacks together, with Eibar doing much better in that respect. Bebe is found making a run down the right this time, before forcing a corner for his team with a blocked cross. The set-piece is taken, but Galvez can't head home from close-range. Men
    • 31'
      The opening half an hour have probably gone as expected, as Gameiro and Torres have been unable to generate anything up top for Simeone's side. Atletico are suffering from the amount of rotation, while Eibar are looking neat and tidy with their second-string players getting a valuable run-out.
    • 32'
      OFFSIDE! Gameiro is released into the penalty area, following a great pass from Saul, but the Frenchman is caught straying just slightly beyond the last man. He shoots his one-on-one effort straight down Yoel's throat anyway.

    • 34'
      Fran Rico takes his leave, after picking up a knock due to a late challenge, with captain Dani Garcia introduced at the base of midfield.
    • 35'
      Juanfran is picked out making a good run in behind Pena, but a cross from the Spain international is cleared at the near post well by Galvez. The quality of crossing has been very poor from both teams, with only Moya being forced into a full-stretch save owing to the dearth of good opportunities.
    • 37'
      Torres is released into the right channel, but Galvez saunters across to slide in and deny the Spanish striker the chance to get in behind. Dos Santos and his central defensive partner have had the measure of Atletico's attack thus far. The away side attack down the same flank again, with Correa coa
    • 39'
      Both teams continue to defend fairly well, with only Pena getting caught out for Eibar. Correa tries to flick the ball up and tee himself up for an over-head kick, but Galvez robs him of the ball easily.
    • 40'
      Lucas gets a yellow card for catching an opponent in the face while rising to head the ball in the middle of the park.
    • 42'
      Only a few minutes remain in the first half, with Eibar enjoying a patient spell of possession. The hosts have been brighter on the ball, but Atletico don't appear to be entirely bothered that they aren't aggressively competing in this game. Their minds look to be already in the semi-finals.
    • 43'
      Galvez making a timely interception, stepping out of his back four well to frustrate the away side, and the Spaniard has been solid all evening. Gaitan is caught by a very late challenge in the middle of midfield, and takes a long while to get back to his feet. That was a full-bodied tackle!
    • 45'
      There is one minute of stoppage time at the end of a rather slow and lack-lustre first half.
    • 46'
      We are back underway in the second half in the Basque Country! Eibar have been a little brighter in possession, but Nano has been isolated up top, with the partnership of Gameiro and Torres offering very little for Los Colchoneros. That could all change this side of the break!
    • 48'
      The atmosphere is rather flat at the start of this second half, with Eibar needing to find at least three goals to have a competitive chance of progressing. Savic lifts a long diagonal pass out to the right, which finds Juanfran overlapping to the byline, but a cut-back from the Spanish right-back i

    • 49'
      Gaitan whips in a teasing set-piece that is flicked into the back of the net wonderfully.
    • 49'
      GOOOOOOOAL! GIMENEZ MAKES IT 1-0! Gaitan manages to bend a great corner delivery in from the left-hand side, which the Uruguayan defender rises well to meet with his head. He guides a great finish into the top-right corner, leaving Yoel with no chance.
    • 51'
      Eibar win a corner of their own, with the resulting ball into the box headed straight at Moya, but the Atletico goalkeeper briefly spills it! Fortunately for the away side, he pounces to gobble up his own mess. A goal for the hosts would at least make for an interesting last 40 minutes!
    • 53'
      Bebe is found out on the right-hand side, but a cross from the Portuguese winger is half-cleared by Savic. The rebound falls straight back to the Eibar man, who drills a second delivery into the awkward area between a back four and their goalkeeper, but the balls flashes across the danger zone and b
    • 55'
      The away side enjoy a spell of possession, with Atletico happy to slow things down a little. Torres and Gameiro are still offering very little indeed. Correa tries to race into a pocket of space on the edge of the penalty area, and looks to be haring forward dangerously, but play is pulled back for
    • 57'
      The home fans are trying to get behind their players, but it is going to take a mammoth effort for Eibar to even make this tie into a contest. Atletico have been fairly solid at the back, with Nano involved very sporadically, and this is looking more and more like a friendly by the minute.
    • 59'
      Eibar work the ball down the right-hand side, with Capa going on a brilliant run. The right-back skips between two defenders and tries to feed a pass into Nano, but his through-ball is intercepted with ease. Savic makes the block, but is penalised for handball - wrongly, it must be said.
    • 60'
      Bebe gets a yellow card for appearing to disagree with the referee. He must have said something that the official didn't like.
    • 61'
      Moya gets down well! The ex-Getafe goalkeeper has to dive quickly to his left-hand side to push a free-kick effort from Bebe away from the danger zone, with Eibar maintaining their pressure. A second cross into the area isn't met with the right contact from Galvez. Somehow, Mendilibar's men haven't

      Koke comes into the centre of midfield for Atletico, as Simeone tries to ensure that all of his players are kept fresh for their next game.
    • 62'
      Carrasco replaces Gameiro for the away side, which should see Correa pushed up top. The Frenchman has failed to impress.
    • 64'
      With less than half an hour on the clock at Ipurua, Atletico are winding the clock down a little. Two changes have broken up the flow of the game, with Simeone happy to see out a comfortable win. Carrasco tries to whip in a cross from the right-hand side, but his awful cross sails over Torres easily
    • 66'
      Correa is the target of a quick ball over the top for Atletico, but Galvez is able to track back and nod a header back to Yoel. Eibar are trying to press a little higher and have a strong end to this game, but it is playing further into Simeone's hands. His team are more than happy to play on the co
    • 68'
      Good save from Yoel! Correa is fed into the clear brilliantly by Carrasco, who has made a difference going forward since coming on. The Argentine shakes off his marker and gets into the penalty area, but the Eibar goalkeeper stands tall and makes an important stop.
    • 70'
      Simeone will be wondering what he has to do in order to get his forwards scoring, as all three of Correa, Gameiro and Torres have been either wasteful or quiet this evening. Eibar stroke the ball around, probing for a gap, but Atletico continue to stand firm in their organised banks of four.
    • 72'
      Juanfran is the target of a searching ball down the right-hand side from Atletico, but Galvez covers across yet again to mop up. Eibar have been generally comfortable at the back, save for a couple of good bursts forward from Correa. Less than 20 minutes remain for an equaliser.

      GOOOOOOOOOOAL! SERGI ENRICH MAKES IT 1-1! The substitute makes an immediate impact! Pedro Leon sees a fierce shot come off the post, with the rebound rifled into the back of the net courtesy of an improvised half-volley of a finish.
    • 73'
      Sarriegui takes his leave after some valuable first-team minutes, with Pedro Leon slotting in on the right-hand side.
    • 73'
      Josue is replaced after a quiet second half, with the debutant jogging off to allow for Sergi Enrich to join the forward line.
    • 74'
      SI Š. Vrsaljko SO Fran Rico
    • 75'
      Gaitan jogs off, which should see Vrsaljko head to right-back Juanfran to step up into a wide midfield role.
    • 75'
      That goal has given Eibar and their fans a lift, after a second half that has largely been quite low-tempo. The away side try to respond with a quick attack of their own, as Correa and Carrasco combine on the break, but a poor touch from the former is intercepted by Capa.
    • 77'
      Eibar have won a few free-kicks in dangerous areas of late, with Pedro Leon causing real problems down the right-hand side since coming on. Simeone is looking a little nervous on the touchline, as momentum is pushing the hosts towards finding a second goal at the moment.
    • 79'
      Rivera and Bebe combine, before the Portuguese winger sets a pass back to Pena. The Eibar left-back tries to curl a cross in towards the back post, but it bounces once and skids behind for a goal-kick. Disappointing delivery. Atletico are sitting back and trying to funnel their opponents into non-th

      Pena lofts a pass to the edge of the penalty area, and Pedro Leon does the rest with the pace of the ball!
    • 80'
      GOOOOOOOOOAL! PEDRO LEON MAKES IT 2-1! Bebe whips in a great cross from the left-hand side, which forces Moya to come off his line and punch clear. Eibar keep their pressure on, and Pena guiding in a good delivery from deep. Pedro Leon guides home a beautiful left-footed half-volley, what a strike!
    • 82'
      Suddenly, Ipurua is much louder as we head into the last 10 minutes. Atletico try to respond with a quick burst down the left, but Carrasco and Koke are forced back away from goal. The visitors aren't in any rush, as the aggregate scoreline is still firmly in their favour.
    • 84'
      Lucas does well to get up and head a good ball away from Pedro Leon, as Eibar continue to look particularly dangerous down their right. Galvez tries to find Pena overlapping down the left, and tries to win a corner from Vrsaljko, but the Croatian substitute does just enough.

      Gabi lifts a great throughball over the top, picking out Juanfran getting in behind Pena.
    • 85'
      GOOOOOOOOAL! JUANFRAN MAKES IT 2-2! Great strike from the Spain international. After switching to the right-hand side of midfield for the late stages, the usual full-back makes an impact. Yoel is caught straying too far off his line, allowing for Juanfran to lift a brilliantly weighted finish into t
    • 87'
      The last few minutes will probably be played out in cautious fashion, as Atletico will be happy to not leave tonight on the end of a defeat. That goal from Juanfran was fortunate, especially given that Eibar have been much the better of the two sides since the restart.
    • 89'
      Eibar are enjoying a lot of the ball, with the away side happy to sit deep and absorb the pressure. Rivera is tackled by Gabi, who tries to release Carrasco forward on the break, but the pass from the Atletico captain is woefully inaccurate.
