Torres scores 100th La Liga goal in Atletico win

Torres scores 100th La Liga goal in Atletico win”

Fernando Torres stole the show at the Wanda Metropolitano, marking the announcement of his Atletico departure with his 100th La Liga goal off the bench.

Torres, the fifth Atletico player to score 100 LaLiga goals for the club, has yet to confirm his next move.

The Spaniard is unlikely to face Arsenal but Griezmann nearly certainly will and his goal was his 19th in La Liga this season, coming without Diego Costa, who is still nursing a thigh strain.

The Spaniard is unlikely to face Arsenal but Griezmann nearly certainly will and his goal was his 19th in La Liga this season.

Atletico felt aggrieved they were not afforded the opportunity to double their lead from the spot in the closing minutes of the opening half, referee Jesus Gil Manzano not only dismissing the strong appeal for a penalty but also carding Griezmann for what he considered to be a dive.

Atletico are second in the standings on 71 points, 11 behind Barca and seven ahead of Real Madrid, who are fourth in the table but can climb above Valencia and into third if they win at basement club Malaga later on Sunday.

This was something of a free hit for Levante, who stay 17th, five points clear of the relegation zone.

The result also guarantees Atletico a place in the Champions League for a sixth consecutive season.

"Barcelona's season is tremendous", Simeone said.

Atletico, who have won their last 10 home games with conceding once, face Arsenal over two legs on 26 April and 3 May.

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

Griezmann wasted a one-on-one situation with Oier Olazabal shortly before halftime when he was booked for diving after contact with the goalkeeper.

Frustrated at the end of the first half, Griezmann was all smiles early in the second when he thumped home Vrsaljko's cut-back ball from the right, the Croatian full-back cushioning the ball perfectly into the path of his team-mate's advancing run.
