Atletico Madrid took first blow in their Copa Del Rey campaign this midweek after snatching a slender home victory over Athletic Bilbao at Vicente Calderon stadium. Playing the first leg at their home court, Atletico tried to take full advantage as they put on an attacking display since kick off. The home team's relentless effort was rewarded though when four minutes before half time, they went one goal up through Diego Godin's effort.
In the second half, both sides continue to push forward for goals, but none of their efforts were successful as neither managed to convert their chances. That tie eventually ended in a 1-0 victory for the home side, but everything is wide open since there's still a second leg tie at Bilbao's home ground.
