Atletico Madrid cruised into the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday despite fielding an under-strength side as a 2-2 draw at Eibar secured a 5-2 aggregate win.

Holding a comfortable 3-0 first leg lead, Atletico boss Diego Simeone left top scorer Antoine Griezmann back in the Spanish capital, while Diego Godin and Koke were also left on the bench.

However, there was no hope of a famous comeback for Eibar on their first ever appearance in the quarter-finals once Jose Maria Gimenez fired home a corner to open the scoring four minutes into the second half.

The hosts salvaged some pride and looked set for victory as fine strikes from substitutes Sergi Enrich and Pedro Leon turned the score on the night around.

But Juanfran's well-measured lob over Yoel Rodriguez five minutes from time salvaged a draw for Atletico, who join Alaves in Friday's semi-final draw.
