Atletico leave it late

Atletico Madrid left it late to pick up all three points on Tuesday night, completing a comeback over Getafe.

Stefan Mitrovic put Getafe ahead in the first half after Jan Oblak’s catalogue of errors before Luis Suarez scored an equaliser in the second half.

Then, in the dying minutes, Suarez scored again to take the win after goalscorer Mitrovic misjudged the flight of the ball in his own box.

Celta finally get a win

They had to ride their luck, saving a penalty and dodging a big ROber Pier miss, but goals from Iago Aspas and Brais Mendez got it done.

Celta had only picked up one point from their previous five games.
