Osasuna secured a narrow 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in their Copa Del Rey semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

Valdo netted the only goal of the game to give Osasuna a crucial advantage to take into the second leg next month.

Osasuna dominated from the start with Atletico goalkeeper Leo Franco producing a number of top saves to deny the home side.

The hosts broke the deadlock on 27 minutes when Valdo poked the ball home through a crowd of players after Atletico failed to clear a corner properly.

Atletico tried to respond in the second half but could not find a way past a resolute Osasuna rearguard.

Osasuna were made to sweat for the victory when Carlos Cuellar was sent off seven minutes from time for a second bookable offence, but they held on to secure a 1-0 first leg lead.
