Atletico Madrid Leapfrog Barca, Real To Top Table

Atletico took advantage of Barcelona’s earlier 0-0 draw with Espanyol to move two points clear, albeit having now played a game more with substitute Thomas Partey scoring the winning goal against Levante.

The 2013-14 champions looked like they were going to be frustrated after Koke hit the crossbar with a fantastic half-volley from 20 yards.

But midfielder Partey burst into the box and his shot was fumbled into the net by keeper Diego Marino for the only goal with nine minutes left.

Atletico’s win means Real Madrid will not be able to go top when they face Gary Neville’s Valencia later tonight.
