Diego Godin's bundled effort sees Atletico Madrid leapfrog opponents Osasuna and record just their second away triumph of the season.

Atletico Madrid have leapfrogged opponents Osasuna after a 1-0 victory at the Estadio Reyno de Navarra.

Diego Godin scored the only goal of the game five minutes before the break with a scrappy effort that found the net.

The visitors, who have a dreadful record this season on the road with only one victory, began well and should have been ahead after a quarter of an hour but Koke saw his volley well saved by Osasuna keeper Andres Fernandez.

Top scorer Falcao then went close for Diego Simeone's men but could not find the target.

The Colombian forward played a vital role in the goal moments later by forcing a save from Fernandez, with the resulting loose ball falling to Godin, who bundled home.

After the break Atletico should have extended the lead to two but both Adrian and Tiago squandered good opportunities.

Falcao then wasted the best chance of the match by rounding Fernandez expertly before miscuing his shot.

The home side finally began to impose and laid siege to the Atletico goal as the fixture drew to a close.

Javad Nekounam's long-range shot went close before on-loan Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois denied both Raul Garcia and Dejan Lekic from inside the area.

Atletico are now just two points adrift of Levante and Espanyol, in fourth and fifth respectively, in the La Liga table.
