Atlético Madrid are now third after they beat Deportivo 0-1 on Saturday, although it was not until injury time that Thomas got the winner from a set-piece free kick. Before that Bakkali missed a couple of early chances, and Griezmann and Gaitán tested Pantilimon in the second half, but it looked like Simeone’s side were heading for their sixth draw in seven games before Thomas saved the day for the second time this week.
