Result: Atletico Madrid go top of La Liga with win at Real Betis

Atletico Madrid beat Real Betis 2-0 thanks to goals from Diego Costa and Gabi.

Atletico Madrid maintained their La Liga title push with a 2-0 win against struggling Real Betis this afternoon.

Los Rojiblancos went level on points with neighbours Real Madrid at the top of the division as second half goals from Gabi and Diego Costa saw Diego Simeone's side ease to victory at Benito Villamarin.

The victory takes Atleti top of the table by virtue of the head-to-head with their fierce local rivals.
