Gameiro seals Atletico progression

Kevin Gameiro netted the only goal of the game as Atletico Madrid breezed into the last 16 of the Europa League against FC Copenhagen.

Los Rojiblancos were in full control of the tie after a 4-1 first leg victory and the Frenchman’s powerful finish in the seventh minute finished proceedings as a contest.

Atleti would rather not be in the competition following a shock early elimination from the Champions League yet fielded a strong line-up in both ties.

Diego Simeone’s side sit second in La Liga, seven points off from Barcelona, and now await the last 16 draw of the competition.
