Torres, Griezmann On Target As Atletico Thrash Levante

Atletico Madrid

The hosts didn't have to wait long for their second goal as Antoine Griezmann doubled the lead with a neat finish at the near two minutes into the second half.

The France international's fierce strike from Sime Vrsaljko's volleyed cross saw him on the scoresheet for a fourth successive league outing, while also taking his tally for the season to 26 in all competitions.

Diego Simeone has described Fernando Torres as "an icon" after the Atletico Madrid striker notched his landmark 100th La Liga goal for the club.

The fact is that Atletico are on their way to qualifying for the Champions League through their position of second place in La Liga, but with Valencia and Real Madrid just 3 and 4 points behind them they still have a lot of work to do domestically, and they will surely have to keep playing their best to stay there.

Atletico shaded the first half without creating too many clear-cut chances.

In the clear, the Atletico forward pushed the ball beyond the advancing Olazabal before the pair came into contact with each other.

And the former Spain global brought up three figures in the 3-0 beating of Levante on Sunday, volleying in a superb finish from Angel Correa's cross to complete the scoring.

His milestone moment capped another comfortable home outing for Simeone's men, who remain on course to finish the campaign behind Barca in the table.

The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons but haven't challenged for the Premier League or Champions League titles.

The Spaniard is unlikely to face Arsenal but Griezmann nearly certainly will and his goal was his 19th in La Liga this season.

- Atletico have not lost any of their 17 league games in which Angel Correa has scored (W14 D3).
