Atletico Madrid staged a pragmatic attack in defeating Celta 3-0 in the 28th round of soccer action.

Atletico had only five scoring chances during the entire game on Sunday, but made the most of three of them thanks to Antoine Griezmann, - better known as Vitolo - and Angel Correa, reports news agency.

Celta showed some resistance early in the second half, when they were trailing 1-0, and shortly before conceding the second goal.

With the win, second-place Atletico preserved the status quo; maintaining its spot eight points behind Barcelona and seven points ahead of Real Madrid, which sits in the third spot.
