9th minute, Xerez takes the lead early on through Mario Bermejo.

Atletico levelled almost immediately. They would pull even in the 12th minute thanks to Diego Forlan's strike.

However, the visiting side claimed the spoils when Emiliano Armenteros netted 18 minutes form time.

2-1 the final, Xerez moves another step closer to what would be a miraculous escape from the relegation zone.
