Crucial La Liga clash
Atletico Madrid are only two points behind Sevilla after beating their rivals 3-1 at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday. Jorge Sampaoli’s side will have to give up on title glory and focus on maintaining a Champions League spot now.
Having been dumped out of the competition in midweek by Leicester, Sevilla looked to be carrying that form into this massive clash. They deservedly went behind in the first half thanks to a Diego Godin header.
The home side’s lead was doubled after the break when Antoine Griezmann scored his third direct free-kick of the campaign. Satisfyingly smacking the underside of the crossbar on the way in, it’s his 22nd goal in all competitions.
Joaquin Correa got a consolation for Sevilla after Koke scored Atletico’s third.
Leicester will be wary of facing one of the best strikers in Europe. Griezmann is on fire.
Take a bow, Antoine Griezmann https://t.co/me5tMMj50D
