Leonesa knock out Atletico
Atletico Madrid were dumped out of the Copa del Rey following a shock 2-1 defeat to Spanish third division side Cultural Leonesa at the Reino de Leon Stadium.
Diego Simeone’s side surrendered a late lead and then conceded early in extra-time to be eliminated in the competition’s round of 32.
The last time Atletico fell to a third-division club in the competition was back in the 2011-12 season, prior to the appointment of Simeone.
Following the humiliating defeat, Simeone said, “We have no other option other than to keep working.
“I have a great squad and the results will come soon.”
