Anyway, that's all we have time for tonight, but thanks for joining me as Atletico booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.
Lots of positives tonight for Atletico even though they took a while to get going. Diego Costa was instrumental in the first goal and he continues to look super sharp despite having missed so much football this season. There was also a first Atletico goal for Vitolo and another goal off the bench for Gameiro. When you think Atletico also have Griezmann, Torres, Carrasco and Correa - their attacking options are really something.
90' + 2'
FULL TIME! All over at the Wanda Metropolitano and goals from Carrasco, Gameiro and Vitolo give Atletico a 3-0 win, that's 7-0 on aggregate, as Diego Simeone's side cruise into the next round of the competition.
90' + 1'
OFF THE POST! So unlucky for Lleida as Felix sees a brilliant shot beat Moya but come back off the frame of the goal!
Into TWO minutes of stoppage time at the end of the game...
Atletico have a free kick in a promising position after Gameiro is brought down. It's pumped in and finds Torres but his header is straight at Rivas.
Yellow card Hui Cheng
JUST WIDE! Correa is inches away from making it four. He tries his luck from inside the box but his shot swerves just wide of the post.
Another chance for Torres but Andriu just manages to get a foot in when he's about to shoot and the ball trickles to a grateful Rivas.
Of course that's Vitolo's first goal for Atletico Madrid and seals a very comfortable evening's work for Diego Simeone's side.
GOAL! Vitolo thunders home the third! The ball is played over the top by Torres and he chases after it before firing home at the near post. Great finish.
Assist Fernando José Torres Sanz
CHANCE! A rare sight of goal for Lleida who swing in a ball from deep and manage to find Andriu who puts a strong header just over. That's probably their best chance of the match.
Torres comes forward with the ball, checks back and is then tackled, but the ball goes out for a throw which allows Atletico to keep the pressure on. Lleida will want to try and keep the score down now.
Substitution Joel Huertas Cornudella Hui Cheng
Atletico have finally made their dominance count in this second half with Carrasco and Gameiro getting the goals. Diego Costa deserves great praise for his part in the first while Correa did well for the second. That makes it 6-0 on aggregate now for the hosts.
GOAL! And finally Atletico get their second and it's Gameiro! They win the ball out wide on the left and and find Correa who gets to the byline and pulls it back for Gameiro to slot home from close range.
Assist Ángel Martín Correa
That's a real waste from Lleida. They have a free kick which is pumped into the box but straight into the arms of Moya. They really should have made more of that.
ALMOST A SECOND! Gameiro almost doubles Atletico's lead, he's played through, but has a defender for company. He does manage to get his shot off but Rivas just manages to block with his foot.
Another shot from Lleida, this time from Huertas, but it's miles over the bar and this time Moya is untroubled.
MOYA SAVES! Finally the Atletico goalkeeper is called into action after an overhead kick from Jorge Felix. It was a spectacular effort, but just lacked the power to really trouble the goalkeeper.
Some really nice interplay from Atletico has Gameiro racing forwards after the ball again, but again Rivas is out quickly to claim, on the slide, at the edge of his area.
Gameiro gets his first sniff of goal as the ball is poked through to the Frenchman who scampers into the box after it but sees goalkeeper Rivas get there first.
Substitution Diego da Silva Costa Kevin Gameiro
After seeing that goal go in Simeone opts to ring the changes with Carrasco and Costa going off and Correa and Gameiro coming on for the last half an hour.
Substitution Yannick Ferreira Carrasco Ángel Martín Correa
Atletico go straight back on the attack through Vitolo who crosses for Torres but Lleida manage to clear for a throw. The hosts keep the pressure on and again the ball is crossed for Torres, but again he can't get on the end of it.
Yellow card Mouhamadou Moustapha Gning
GOAL! Finally Atletico make the breakthrough and it's Carrasco who fires home a low shot from just inside the box! Credit also needs to go to Costa who raced into the box, stopped and then picked out Carrasco to fire home.
Assist Diego da Silva Costa
Substitution Francisco Javier López Díaz Jordi Martínez Canellas
Again Atletico work the ball into the box, but it's just too congested in there for anybody to manage to get a clear shot away. Lleida are doing a pretty good job of frustrating the hosts at the start of this second half.
Costa picks out Carrasco again on the edge of the box, but again, his first touch lets him down. It's just not clicking for Atletico in attack so far tongiht.
Lleida work a couple of promising positions but are let down by a poor final ball which allows Atletico to win the ball back and try to play it out. They've been really comfortable in defence all night long have the hosts.
Atletico win a corner but the ball goes all the way through to Costa at the far post, but he's adjudged to have handballed and it's a free kick to Lleida. Costa does not look best pleased, but it's the right call from the referee.
Atletico are back on the attack through Costa, he feeds Carrasco who tries to lay it off, but his pass is deflected and Lleida can clear.
Atletico have made a change at half-time as Lucas Hernandez has gone off to be replaced by 20-year-old Antonio Montoro.
Substitution Lucas Hernández Pi Antonio Montoro Rodríguez
HERE WE GO! Both teams are back out onto the pitch and Lleida get this second half underway!
Not far away from the second half now, the Lleida players are back in the tunnel, but so far no sign of Atletico...
Of course Atletico still lead 4-0 after the first leg but they will probably have been expecting to add a few more tonight against third division opposition.
45' + 1'
HALF-TIME! No goals at the break but Atletico have hit the post through Lucas while Costa and Torrres have both had chances to score. Lleida goalkeeper Rivas has made a couple of good saves and while the hosts have dominated, they are yet to make the breakthrough.
Into ONE minute of added time at the end of the first half...
Heading towards half-time and still no goals so far but Atletico have had their chances and will be frustrated not to be ahead.
GOOD SAVE RIVAS! Vitolo pops up down the left this time, surges forwards and shoots at the near post but Rivas gets down well to block.
More less than impressive defending in the Lleida box sees the ball fall to Carrasco, but he rushes his shot and it flies high and wide. Bit of a let-off there for the visitors.
Atletico press and force a mistake and Diego Costa is onto it in a flash. He chases a loose ball into the box but Moustapha Gning gets back brilliantly to make the tackle and deny the striker a shot on goal.
CLOSE FROM COSTA! All the threat is coming down the flanks for Atletico so far. This time it comes down the right with Vitolo who crosses for Costa but his header is just over the bar.
The visitors have been forced into a change here with Aitor Nunez picking up an injury and going off. On comes Jose Luis Valiente in his place.
José Luis Valiente
Substitution Aitor Núñez Martín José Luis Valiente Giménez
A nice move from Atletico sees Vitolo go on a great run before finding Carraso down the left. He brings the ball forwards and picks out Torres but his first touch is not great, and then Atletico are guilty of overplaying it a bit and Lleida can intercept and clear.
Torres opts to have a pop from range but his shot is not good enough to trouble Rivas and flies harmlessly over the bar.
Side-netting for Lleida! Well this one's starting to warm up. A hopeful ball forwards flies into the box and Nierga just managed to get on the end of it. He's at a really tight angle and has Moya for company so can only shoot into the side-netting.
GOOD SAVE RIVAS! That really should have been the opener for Atletico. They break through Torres who crosses for Costa in the area, he just has the goalkeeper to beat but Rivas blocks his shot!
Atletico play out from the back and work the ball beautifully all the way to Vitolo on the edge of the box. The new signing edges into the area and just takes too long, allowing Lleida to nick possession and the chance goes begging. Vitolo looks frustrated and it's understandable, he was in a pretty good position there.
Midway through the first half and no goals yet but Atletico have come close with Lucas hitting the post. The hosts are just starting to fashion some chances now, while Lleida are yet to test Moya in the Atletico goal.
Another chance for Atletico as Carrasco races down the left and crosses for Torres but again he can't convert.
That was a real let-off for Lleida and they enjoy a few minutes of possession before sending the ball out of play. They are struggling to get anywhere near Moya's goal, and are just lacking a bit of quality in attack.
WHAT A CHANCE! Atletico win the first corner of the match and it's swung in by Gabi and finds Lucas at the near post who heads goalwards and thinks he's scored, but it hits the frame of the post and comes back out! The rebound is then smashed high over the bar! So close to an opener.
Lleida just enjoying a few minutes of good possession here. They are struggling to carve out a chance but they are certainly capable of playing some good possession football.
Atletico are playing with youngster Sergi at left-back today and in the last two minutes he's been nutmegged and given the ball straight to the opposition. A nervy start from the youngster.
And now a similar chance at the other end! The visitors manage to deliver a decent ball into the box but it's headed over by Nierga. It's worth mentioning it's raining pretty heavily in Madrid at the moment, making for a slick playing surface.
Chance for Torres! Atletico work the ball out wide to the left, it's crossed in to Torres at the near post and he manages to flick a header goalwards but it's over the bar.
This is a bit better from the visitors who win a throw in just near the corner flag out wide on the right. They manage to get the ball into the box, but it's overhit and rolls harmlessly out for a throw on the other side.
Atletico goalkeeper Moya gets his first touch of the match as a hopeful ball is punted forwards but trickles all the way through to the shot-stopper.
Atletico go straight on the attack from kick off but can't quite fashion a chance. They do, however, win the ball back and are seeing plenty of the ball in the opening minutes. You suspect the pattern of the match might just be set already.
The hosts kick off and we are underway in Madrid! Atletico are in their traditional red and white shirts and blue shorts tonight, while the visitors are in blue shirts and socks with white shorts.
The two teams are coming out onto the pitch and we are not too far away from kick off now! It's fair to say there's a lot of empty seats a the Wanda Metropolitano tonight.
So Atletico may be 4-0 up in the tie but it's still a pretty attacking team that Simeone has sent out tonight. Of course the big news is a first Atletico start for Vitolo, while Diego Costa also starts, he's suspended for the weekend's clash with Eibar so no need to rest him tonight.
