Torres Brace Inspires Atletico To Victory

Spanish La Liga

Result: Atletico Madrid 3-1 Athletic Bilbao

Date: 21 May 2017

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Atletico Madrid ended their season on a high, as a brace from Fernando Torres helped secure a 3-1 win over Athletic Bilbao at the Vicente Calderon.

In the eighth minute Fernando Torres opened the account for the Red and Whites after turning home Antoine Griezmann's cross.

Three minutes later, Torres doubled Atletico's lead. Griezmann was instrumental again as he played the cross off to Koke who teed up Torres for his second.

In the 37th minute Yannick Carrasco had a great chance to make it 3-0 but his right footed shot from the edge of the box went narrowly over the bar.

The match went into the interval with Diego Simeone's side leading 2-0 and quite comfortably.

In the hour-mark Laporte came close again with a curling shot on the edge of the box but his effort went agonisingly wide.

In the 71st minute Inaki Williams pulled one goal back. Williams latched onto a pass from Laporte before claiming slotting past Jan Oblak.

Angel Correa eventually sealed the win in the 89th minute as he made it 3-1 with a curling effort from the edge of the box.
