Diego Simeone’s men had drawn their last three league games against Real Madrid, Valladolid and Valencia, but this time Saul Niguez and Alavaro Morata scored in either half for the win. It was Atleti’s eighth clean sheet from 10 matches this season.

The result ties Los Rojibalancos level on points with league leaders Barcelona, who are not in action this weekend, after El Clasico was postponed due to security reasons and rescheduled for December 18.
