Atletico Madrid 3 : 0 Valencia

Atletico Madrid moved back into the Champions League places with a comfortable La Liga win over Valencia.

Striker Fernando Torres watched from the stands, two days after being released from hospital following a head injury suffered during their last game.

Antoine Griezmann scored twice, including a fine opener from Koke's through ball.

Kevin Gameiro scored a deflected goal to double the lead before Griezmann's late second sealed the win.

Atletico are one point above fifth-placed Real Sociedad – but six points behind Sevilla in third.
