In Thursday night's first Copa del Rey quarterfinal, a 1-1 draw with Real Betis was enough to send Atletico Madrid through 3-1 on aggregate.

Looking to defend a 2-0 first-leg advantage, Atletico extended that with a goal on the stroke of half-time from Diego Costa.

Betis were never in the match and a last-minute penalty from Jorge Molina was little more than a consolation for the hosts.
