Radamel Falcao was delighted after helping Atletico Madrid reach their second Copa del Rey final in four years.

Falcao’s 29th-minute strike against Sevilla was crucial as it sent the away side into a 4-1 aggregate lead, before they eventually prevailed 4-3 on aggregate.

“Being in the final is very important for Atletico, (so) we are pleased and we are proud,” Falcao said after the match.

“The end of the match was ugly, but it doesn’t matter,” he added, referring to Gary Medel’s incensed reaction to being red-carded as the match drifted away from the Andalusians.

Former Porto striker Falcao also admitted that Atletico’s first-leg advantage and their opponents’ increasing attempts to chase the game played into their hands.

“We had a good strategy. We knew they would try to win and that would give us chances, and we took advantage,” he said.

“I’m happy because we put in a lot of work and effort.”
