LaLiga: Atletico Madrid 3 Levante 0

0 205

Fernando Torres scored his 100th La Liga goal as Atletico Madrid beat Levante in the week it was announced he would leave this summer.

Having lost 1-0 to Sporting CP on Thursday, the home side appeared to be suffering a Europa League hangover until Angel Correa broke through Levante’s resistance in the 33rd minute.

 Griezmann added the second when he thumped home Vrsaljko’s cut-back ball from the right, the Croatian full-back cushioning the ball perfectly into the path of his team-mate’s advancing run.

Torres, who has not been a first-team regular this season, came on for Antoine Griezmann and volleyed home Atletico’s third from 10 yards.

While the win does little to bother champions-elect Barcelona in terms of the title race in Spain, Atletico are now certain of a top-four finish with six games remaining.
