Returning to the club where he established his reputation

Atleti claim derby edge over Real


Fernando Torres made his second debut for Atletico Madrid as the Spanish champions beat Real Madrid 2-0 in the first leg of the Copa del Rey capital city derby. But you can buy FIFA 15 coins to play well in FIFA 15.

Returning to the club where he established his reputation before moving on to represent Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan, striker Torres had a largely quiet game and was substituted after an hour.

But Atletico were impressive and deserving winners against the cup holders, with the advantage at the midway point of the last-16 tie earned by second-half goals from Raul Garcia - a penalty after he was brought down by Sergio Ramos - and teenage defender Jose Maria Gimenez.

The adoring Vicente Calderon crowd willed Torres on to the form that at one stage made him one of the world's most feared strikers. Yet while his threat was often snuffed out, the match could have seen plenty more goals.

Ramos almost scored after just a minute when his header from James Rodriguez's corner was pushed away by Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak. Gareth Bale netted a 13th-minute glancing header that was ruled out correctly for offside.
