Atletico eliminated by Girona in Copa del Rey quarterfinals

MADRID (AP) Atletico Madrid has been eliminated by Girona in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after being held to a 3-3 draw at home on Wednesday.

Antoine Griezmann came off the bench to score an 84th-minute goal that looked enough to send Atletico to the quarterfinals, but substitute Seydou Doumbia netted in the 88th and Girona advanced on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate score. The teams drew 1-1 in the first leg last week.

It is the first time since 2012 - the year coach Diego Simeone arrived - that Atletico has failed to reach the Copa quarterfinals.
