Griezmann On Target As Atleti Cruise Past Levante

Spanish LaLiga 

Result: Atletico Madrid 3-0 Levante

Date: 15 April 2018

Venue: Wanda Metropolitano

Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres were among the goals as Atletico Madrid cruised to a 3-0 win over Levante on Sunday afternoon.

The opening exchanges proved to be a quiet affair and, despite Atletico's dominance, clear-cut chances were hard to come by in the opening 15 minutes.

Levante did show some resolve as the first half went on as Roger Martí went close with a header after 23 minutes.

Atletico eventually broke the deadlock on 33 minutes as some fine work by Vitolo saw the winger tee up Angel Correa, who calmly slotted home.

That proved to be the final chance of the half as Atletico took a 1-0 lead into the break.

Three minutes into the second half, the lead was doubled as Griezmann turned home Sime Vrsalijko's cross with a first-time finish.

After the hour mark, Diego Simeone introduced Gabi and Fernando Torres as they looked to consolidate the lead.

Torres eventually sealed the win for Atletico in the 77th minute by turning home Correa's in the box.

Levante looked lively in the closing stages of the second half, but they failed to bypass the hosts defence as the score remained 3-0 at the full-time whistle.
