Atletico rescue win at home against Eibar

Atletico Madrid came from a goal down to beat Eibar 3-1 in Saturday’s La Liga clash at the Vicente Calderon.

Atletico resumed the match without three members of their regular back four; Juanfran, Diego Godin and Felipe Luis out with suspensions, while Augusto Fernandez missed out through injury, leaving Diego Simeone short of options.

Keko sent the visitors ahead early in the second period, but headers from Jose Gimenez and Saul Niguez completed the turnaround for Atletico, who remain second in the La Liga table.

There was time for one more goal in stoppage time, however, and it was a special occasion for Fernando Torres, who came off the bench to score his 100th goal for the Spanish outfit.
