Atlético Madrid are up to third pending Sevilla’s game on Sunday lunchtime after they beat Málaga 0-2 in the last match on Saturday. Fernando Torres set up both goals almost without meaning to, the first after Koke ran on to his deflected return pass to turn a shot past Kameni midway through the first half. Keko and Sandro tested Oblak either side of the break, but otherwise the local keeper was hardly troubled, and Torres and Griezmann went close before Filipe Luis picked up another speculative pass from Torres to make it two with a quarter of an hour to go. Sandro, Llorente, Santos and Rosales all came up against Oblak as the visitors tried to get back in the game near the end, but it was another defeat for Michel’s team, who find themselves just two places above the relegation spots having not won since mid-February. .
