The first leg saw Athletico Madrid beat Eibar 3-0 at the Estadio Vicente Calderon and have an upper hand going into the second leg at Eibar.

Eibar knows they needs to prevent Athletico from scoring and score at least 3 goals to have any chance of making th final four.

In th other game, Real Madrid needs to at least better Celta Vigo scores in the first leg to prevent the Los Blancos from exiting in the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid were booted out in last season’s Copa won by Barcelona after fielding a suspended (unqualified) player in the Round of 32.

The Zidane’s managed side lost 2-1 at home to Celta Vigo and needs to win by at least 2 goals to stand any chance of making the semi finals. They will be without Luka Modric who is ruled out for 10 days and Marco Asensio who was stretched off in the first leg.

The Los Blancos with their manager means only progression to the semi final will not be a disappointment.
