Miranda and Diego Godin both score as Atletico Madrid lead 2-1 against Celta Vigo after 45 minutes of their La Liga match.

Atletico Madrid have come from behind to a take a 2-1 lead into the break of their La Liga match against Celta Vigo this evening.

The hosts created the first chance of the evening when Tiago latched onto a cross inside the six-yard box, but he could only place his effort wide of the post.

It was Celta Vigo who took the lead in the 19th minute when a long ball into the box from Carles Planas was flicked past the keeper by Pablo Hernandez.

Antoine Griezmann almost drew the hosts level two minutes later, but his header was saved by Sergio Alvarez.

Atletico did manage to get back on level terms just past the half-hour mark as Miranda met Koke's free kick at the front post to guide the ball into the net.

They scored their second of the match 10 minutes later when Diego Godin rose highest to head in Gabi's corner.
