The first leg of the semi-final clash between the two Spanish capital clubs at Santiago Bernabeu saw Real registering a 3-0 victory over their derby rivals.

Pepe opened the scoring for Carlo Ancelotti's side before Jese and Angel Di Maria's second-half goals gave the nine-time European champions a comfortable victory over Atletico.

Real have a three-goal advantage coming into the second leg. In addition to this, they were also successful in restricting Diego Simeone's men from scoring the much needed away goal.

The winners of this clash will face Barcelona or Real Sociedad as the Catalan club have a first-leg lead of two goals. The second leg between the La Liga winners and Sociedad will take place on Wednesday evening.

Atletico are without a win in their last two games played in all competitions while Real have registered a 4-2 victory over Villarreal in the last league fixture.

What Managers Say

Diego Simeone: "Qualification will be difficult but nothing is impossible in life. We have to focus on improving. The team fight, play, work and do not look for excuses. I always said I want an Atletico team that made it uncomfortable [for Real] and we are getting there."

Carlo Ancelotti: "We have a significant advantage but we need to play with the same focus as in the first leg to avoid problems. We shouldn't change our philosophy and we have to play with intensity to have possession. The best thing is to not to think about the lead that we have. It will be difficult because they are a very strong team."
