La Liga- Atletico Reclaim Top Spot

Atletico Madrid moved back to the top of La Liga with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Celta Vigo. The match went ahead despite torrential rain flooding a dressing room and roads around the ground two days earlier.

Antoine Griezmann put the visitors in the lead with his 10th league goal of the season, and a second-half strike from Yannick Carrasco made the game save for Diego Simeone’s men.

The 2014 champions are two points of Barcelona, who have a game in hand.

Atletico’s victory was in response to huge wins for Barcelona and Real Madrid, who had routed Granada and Deportivo La Coruna respectively on Saturday.

Lionel Messi grabbed a hat-trick as Barca swept past Granada 4-0, while Real were similarly dominant in a 5-0 victory over Deportivo in Zinedine Zidane’s first match in charge.
