Date: 25 September 2016

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Antoine Griezmann scored the only goal of the game to hand Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna.

The first real opening arrived after 10 minutes when Nicolas Gaitan's corner found Diego Godin, who headed just wide of the upright.

Laure came to Deportivo's rescue after 22 minutes, as the full-back cleared Godin's goal-bound effort off the line.

The half ended on a sour note for the visitors as Faycal Fajr was given his marching orders after picking up his second yellow card.

Despite Atletico dominating the first half, the score remained goalless as the sides entered the halftime break.

The hosts continued to struggled upon resumption in the second half, which prompted Diego Simeone to introduce Kevin Gameiro for Yannick Carrasco after 59 minutes.

The change paid off for Atletico and Simeone, as Gameiro turned provider to tee up Griezmann for his fifth goal of the season.

Deportivo pushed numbers forward and also introduced Ryan Babel in the closing stages but they could not find a way past the Atletico defence.
