Fernando Torres brace helps Atletico Madrid see off Elche

29/11/2017

Fernando Torres scored his first two goals of the season to help Atletico Madrid reach the Copa del Rey last 16 with a 3-0 win over Elche on Wednesday.

Beginning 1-1 from last month's first leg, Atletico were set on their way when Jose Maria Gimenez headed home at a corner half an hour in, and then Torres netted his first goal since May two minutes later by putting in a rebound from a tight angle.

Luciano Vietto and Thomas Partey missed good chances to add to the score after the break, before Torres got his second of the night by hammering the ball high to the net at the near post in the 68th minute.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea forward twice came close to completing his first hat trick for Atletico since returning the club, while fellow striker Vietto also had at least five clear chances to end his own goal drought, but the three goals were enough to see Atletico through.
