Mario Mandzukic's two-goal performance was one of the few bright spots on the night for Atletico.

Atletico Madrid did what they had to do in order to set up a mouth-watering fifth round Copa del Rey tie with neighbours Real Madrid, but it was far from plain sailing for Los Rojiblancos as third division minnows L'Hospitalet held them to a 2-2 draw at a largely empty Vicente Calderon Stadium.
