MADRID: Antoine Griezmann scored a header as Atletico Madrid snatched a 1-0 win despite an uninspiring performance against Mallorca on Sunday, moving them to third place in the LaLiga standings.
Diego Simeone’s side are level with fourth-placed Barcelona on 31 points but have a game in hand over last season’s champions.
Surprise leaders Girona are top on 34 points, two ahead second-placed Real Madrid.
Atletico controlled possession but were toothless up front. Left back Samuel Lino was the only Atletico player who stood out, motoring up and down the wing all night only to see his team mates waste one opportunity after the other. (Reuters)
