After the victory at Levante on Tuesday evening, Atletico Madrid moved above Sevilla and into third place in La Liga.
Atleti manager Diego Simeone had his squad in sixth position in La Liga, as football resumed earlier this month following Europe’s extended three-month pause due to the coronavirus epidemic.
As the resumed tournament progressed, they advanced beyond Getafe, Real Sociedad and Sevilla in the table now.
They recently recorded a five-goal triumph at Osasuna as well as edging past Real Valladolid 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano last weekend.
Despite a draw versus Athletic Club Bilbao in San Mames, Atleti has now secured three straight league matches to nil.
Levante stays 11th in the table with an end to their unbeaten five-game run in La Liga.
The win was also a significant milestone for Simeone personally as well. It was his 194th at the team’s helm in La Liga, equaling Luis Aragones’ career record.
Bruno Gonzalez’s own goal in the 15th minute was enough for Los Rojiblancos to decide the game and seal a third consecutive win.
Levante – Atlético Madrid (0:1):
