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.”
