Atletico Madrid is back up to third in La Liga after beating Levante and making it three wins and a draw since the lockdown ended.

It’s three wins on the bounce now for Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.

Since the return from the COVID-19 lockdown, Los Rojiblancos are undefeated.

They have drawn one and won three, scoring eight and conceding only one.

This form has seen them rise from sixth to third as they look to secure a vita Champions League spot for next season.

A 15th-minute own goal from Levante’s Bruno Gonzalez was enough to secure all three points, although Diego Costa may trying claiming he got the final touch on the ball.

While the home side totally dominated possession against Simeone’s side, the tale of the tape and Levante’s woes for the season was clear to see. The hosts failed to register a single shot on target.
