Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid 2 − 0 (Copa Del Rey 2022 Goals & Highlights)

4 months ago

Atletico Madrid were knocked out of the Copa del Rey after a 2-0 defeat at Real Sociedad in the last 16 on Wednesday.

Real Sociedad took the lead in the 33rd minute from a superb header by Adnan Januzaj, who jumped between three defenders to score into the bottom-left corner of Jan Oblak's goal.

Real extended their lead after a defensive mistake, when Mikel Oyarzabal robbed the ball from Felipe and freed Alexander Sorloth to run into the box and rifle into the net from close range.

"The only way to improve is to get the players to work, to find confidence, above all in these complicated situations in games. It was a tough game, La Real started well," Atletico manager Diego Simeone said. "Right now, the dynamic isn't good, it needs to change. We need to think positive, I'm optimistic, I believe in my players, but obviously this isn't comfortable.

"It's a football problem, every day isn't the same, every year isn't the same, every month isn't the same. Last season was magnificent, just five or six months ago, and this season has been very difficult so far. The possibilities and opportunities are there, we have the league and the Champions League."

The Basque side joined Valencia, Real Betis, Rayo Vallecano, Mallorca and Cadiz in the quarterfinals while Real Madrid face Elche and Athletic Bilbao host Barcelona in the last two round-of-16 games on Thursday.
