Girona knocks Atletico out of Copa del Rey

Late drama and 3-3 at the Metropolitano, unlucky Atleti out on away goals, VAR a major player

A late equalizer by Seydou Doumbia cancels out Griezmann’s goal and fixes the final score at 3-3. Atletico Madrid is out of the Spanish Cup on away goals while Girona progresses to the quarterfinals. Catalans showed 100% efficiency scoring all three of their shots on target in a highly-contested game which saw the lead change a few times. Controversial VAR played a big role yet again after two Atleti goals were ruled out for questionable offsides, first Kalinic, then Rodri. In both instances, referee Antonio Mateu decided that the Colchonero player was just offside with the upper side of his body.

12′ Nikola Kalinic           1 – 0

                                           1 – 1 37′ Valery Fernandez
                                           1 – 2 59′ Cristhian Stuani

66′ Angel Correa             2 – 2

84′ Antoine Griezmann 3 – 2
                                           3 – 3 Seydou Doumbia
