Share

Atletico Madrid left it late but had substitute Kevin Gameiro to thank for a quick-fire hat-trick that helped his side to a 4-1 victory over lowly Sporting Gijon at the Estadio Municipal El Molinon on Saturday.

Atletico's Yannick Carrasco opened the scoring seconds after half-time, but Sergio Alvarez levelled for Sporting moments later.

With the score at 1-1 and Diego Simeone's side looking anything but in command, Gameiro scored his first in the 79th minute after a fantastic assist from Griezmann.

Diego Simeone's charges enjoyed most of the possession, and should have went ahead midway through the first half when Fernando Torres was denied by Mere from point-blank range.

Atletico remained in fourth place at one point behind Sevilla and four points behind leader Real Madrid.

With their confidence rising, the Rojiblancos began to take control of the tie, and were again so almost in the lead as the impressive Traore smashed a first-time effort against the left-hand upright, after connecting to a Moi Gomez cross from the left.

The match might have been far from enthralling in the first half but it roared into life within three minutes of the second.

Sporting promptly pushed forward for a response and they got it with the next attack of the game.

However, Atletico were sluggish in the first 45 minutes with Sporting's giant 6ft 8in striker Lacine Traore twice coming close to opening the scoring.

Substitute Saul Niguez brought a save from Cuellar with a header at the other end, before Griezmann - who had been kept firmly on the fringes of proceedings - controlled the ball before prodding it into the bottom corner only to see the offside flag raised for the narrowest of infringements.
