Atletico Madrid moved to the top of La Liga table after a comfortable 2-0 win at home against Real Sociedad on Saturday.

They recovered well from Wednesday’s humbling 4-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek.

Diego Godin scored the first goal just before the break, pouncing on a loose ball which the defenders scrambled to clear and score from a close range. Then Filipe Luis scored the second right on the hour mark to seal the win.

Atletico lead the table on 19 points, a point ahead of Barcelona who could come back to the top depending on the Sunday’s El Clasico result. Alaves could also move ahead of Atletico if they win over Villarreal on Sunday.
