Hernandez brace helps Celta stun Atletico Madrid, advance to semis
Pablo Hernandez scored two goals as Celta Vigo demolished Atletico Madrid's vaunted defence in a 3-2 win to advance to the semifinals of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.
After a scoreless first leg, Hernandez broke Atletico's run of five consecutive clean sheets at their Vicente Calderon Stadium in the 22nd minute.
Antoine Griezmann leveled for the hosts shortly after, but John Guidetti and Hernandez struck early in the second half before Atletico substitute Angel Correa scored with eight minutes left.
It was Atletico's first loss at home since Sept. 30, and the first time they had conceded three goals all season.
Sevilla plays Mirandes on Thursday, while Valencia visits Las Palmas.
