Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists that his club's Copa del Rey tie with Sevilla is still in the balance.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has insisted that either his side or Sevilla could progress through to the Copa del Rey final.

Madrid won 2-1 on Thursday evening to hold a slender advantage going into the second leg which takes place on February 28. Despite the victory, Simeone believes that the tie is still "very open".

Simeone told reporters: "The score sheet never lies, and I think that it was a fair result because that is how the game finished.

"The tie is still very open, 50/50, and either team could still win it."

Real Madrid or Barcelona await the winners in the final.
