Atletico Madrid defeated Levante one-nil in a Spanish Cup tie in Valencia.

Valencia's Cuitat de Valencia stadium played host to the Spanish Cup tie between Levante and Atletico Madrid. A quiet first half saw Mustapha Riga almost put the home side ahead, but his long range effort went narrowly wide of the Atletico goal. It remained goalless at half time and as the game wore on, so the crowd grew more tense. When the fourth official signalled for four minutes of added time, much to the surprise of the home fans, Atletico found a winner. An innocuous long ball from the back found its way to the diminutive Kun Algero. The substitute striker showed some excellent close range control before firing home past Pablo Oscar Cavallero to seal a one-nil win for the visitors. (AP)
