Atletico Madrid advanced to a Copa del Rey soccer final against Real Madrid after a 2-2 draw at Sevilla, while David Beckham helped Paris Saint-Germain reach the French Cup quarterfinals in his first start for the club.

Leading 2-1 after the semifinal opener, Atletico went 4-1 up over the two matches after Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao scored in Seville last night. Jesus Navas and Ivan Rakitic tied it for the home team, which had Gary Medel and Geoffrey Kondogbia red-carded, as Atletico completed a 4-3 aggregate win.

The May 18 final, which will take place at a neutral venue, will be the first all-Madrid matchup in the Copa del Rey title game since 1992, when Atletico beat Real 2-0.

Real won 3-1 at defending champion Barcelona two days ago to complete a 4-2 victory over two games and reach the final of Spain’s elite cup competition for a record-extending 38th time.

In France, Beckham played 86 minutes of PSG’s round of 16 victory against Marseille in the French Cup. It was the former England captain’s first start since joining on a five-month contract at the end of January.

Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic got a goal in each half to give French league leader PSG its second 2-0 win against Marseille in four days after beating its archrival on Feb. 24 in Ligue 1.

Lorient and Nancy also won to join PSG in the quarterfinal draw, while Bordeaux beat fourth-tier Raon-L’Etape 5-3 in a penalty shootout after their match finished 2-2.

Bayern Munich stayed on course for a domestic league and cup double as Arjen Robben scored the only goal in his team’s German Cup quarterfinal win against Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern, which has a 17-point lead over Dortmund atop the Bundesliga, will face Stuttgart, Wolfsburg or Freiburg in the semifinals. The draw takes place March 3.
