Atletico Madrid played to a 2-2 draw here Wednesday with Eibar to complete a 5-2 victory on aggregate and advance to the semifinals of the Copa del Rey.

Down 3-0 after the first leg of the quarterfinal in Madrid, the hosts began Wednesday's second leg hoping at least to avoid a sixth consecutive loss to Atleti in all competitions.

Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar coped with the loss of seven players to injury by drafting in substitutes from the club's third-division affiliate, CD Vitoria.

Atletico manager Diego Simeone decided to rest top striker Antoine Griezmann, who did not make the trip to this northern city.

Eibar, after enjoying an edge in the number of chances during the first half, conceded just three minutes into the second, when Jose Maria Gimenez connected with a header off Nico Gaitan's corner.

In the 72nd minute, Mendilibar sent in Pedro Leon and Sergi Enrich to give his team an offensive boost and it took only seconds for the pair to produce a goal.

Leon let loose a volley that bounced off both posts before landing at the feet of Enrich, who fired it home.

Another rebound led to Leon's goal in the 79th minute, but Juanfran exploited a defensive blunder to equalize for Atletico a minute later.

Atleti has won the Copa del Rey 10 times, most recently in 2013, when they defeated cross-town rivals Real Madrid in the final.
