Sports Mole looks ahead to the Copa del Rey semi-final between La Liga outfits Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid are potentially just 90 minutes away from reaching the final of this season's Copa del Rey.

If Diego Simeone's side avoid defeat at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan tomorrow night, they will advance through to May's showpiece event at the expense of Sevilla, who trail 2-1 from the opening leg in the Spanish capital.

Adrian and Cristian Rodriguez are expected to be including in the Atletico starring lineup for the trip to Seville, having been rested at the weekend.

Sevilla also rested key players for their last match and both Alvaro Negredo and Jose Antonio Reyes are expected to return to the side.

Incidentally, Negredo is the competition's leading goalscorer along with Atletico's Diego Costa on six goals.

The home team head into the tie with a negative recent record against Atletico, having not beaten them in their last six attempts - a run that dates back to October 2010.
