Real Madrid are a step into the Copa del Rey final, following a 3-0 win over arch rivals Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Atletico’s hitman Diego Costa, who posed a threat to Real’s defence on few occasions, was booked in the second-half and now misses the return leg. The Los Rojiblancos’ top goal scorer reacted to a challenge from Di Maria and earned a suspension.

Luka Modric denied the visitors an away goal, clearing off the line a Diego Godin goal-bound effort to help Iker Casillas maintain a club record eighth successive clean sheet. The Croatia international midfielder also came close through a well-struck volley early on in the encounter.

Real are likely to face Barcelona, who beat Real Sociedad 2-0 in their first-leg semis at the Nou Camp, in the final.
