Atletico win to enter King’s Cup final

sports Updated: Feb 12, 2010 22:38 IST

Atletico Madrid set up a King’s Cup final against Sevilla when they went through 6-3 on aggregate despite conceding two late goals to lose 3-2 at Racing Santander in their semi-final second leg on Thursday.

Atletico thrashed Racing 4-0 at the Calderon in last week's first leg but were rocked in only the second minute in Santander when defender Juan Valera headed into his own net from a corner.

Valera made amends six minutes later when he burst into the penalty area and pressured Jose Moraton into diverting a Jose Antonio Reyes freekick past goalkeeper Mario Fernandez. Atletico midfielder Jurado snuffed out any hopes of a Racing comeback shortly after halftime when he exchanged passes with Sergio Aguero and curled the ball into the bottom corner with the outside of his right foot.
