Atletico take on Real Madrid on Friday 17th April, 2013, with kickoff at 20:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
The Spanish FA Cup is not traditionally a massive deal in that part of the world, but with neither of the big sides making it into the final of the Champions League and Real Madrid set to lose the specially egotistical one after he delivered the incredible feat of 3 semi-finals in Europe (gasp) this match has taken on new significance, even before you consider that it’s a local derby.
Atletico could be set for more sales in the summer, and with any luck that will mean their stars are keen to perform, and provide us with a good spectacle.
