MADRID (AP) – Cristiano Ronaldo had two goals and Real Madrid advanced to its third Copa del Rey final in four seasons with a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, easing through 5-0 on aggregate.
Ronaldo, who was hit on the head by a cigarette lighter at halftime, converted a pair of early penalties at the Vicente Calderon. He has 34 goals in 32 games this season.
Atletico beat Madrid at its Santiago Bernabeu Stadium to lift the trophy last season.
Madrid will face either Barcelona or Real Sociedad in the April 19th final, with Barcelona leading 2-0 going into the second leg at San Sebastian.
