Spanish league leader Atletico Madrid was upset by third-tier Cornella in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, losing 1-0 at the Barcelona-based club in the round of 32.

Atletico played with 10 men from 65th minute when Ricardo Sanchez received his second booking.

Cornella defender Adrian Jimenez scored the game’s only goal in the eighth minute from a cross by Agus Medina to the near post.

Atletico was never comfortable on Cornella’s artificial turf. The closest it came to equalizing was Saul Niguez’s shot off the woodwork midway through the first half.

Cornella is in seventh place of its group in the third tier, with three wins, two draws and four losses.

Atletico leads the Spanish league after having only lost once in 15 rounds.
