Atletico Madrid ease to win over Levante

Fernando Torres is a joyful figure in Madrid as he scores his 100th La Liga goal

Atletico Madrid eased to a 3-0 win at home over Levante to strengthen its hold on second place in the Spanish league on Sunday.

Torres confirmed he will depart the club, where he made his name as a young striker, when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Torres, the fifth Atletico player to score 100 LaLiga goals for the club, has yet to confirm his next move.

Atletico remained 11 points behind leader Barcelona with six rounds remaining, meaning its best chances of finishing the season with silverware rest on its upcoming Europa League semifinal against Arsenal.

Elsewhere in Spain on Sunday, John Guidetti's early goal gave Alaves a 1-0 win at Eibar, lifting them up to 15th in La Liga.

Diego Rolan grabbed a consolation for Malaga with the last kick of the game but the result was never in doubt.

Torres' grievance this term has been a lack of playing time and he was a substitute again at the Wanda Metropolitano, replacing Antoine Griezmann, who was also on target.

"Barcelona's season is tremendous", Simeone said.

Atletico, who have won their last 10 home games with conceding once, face Arsenal over two legs on 26 April and 3 May.

Torres enjoyed the biggest cheer of the afternoon and followed his brilliant finish by blowing the crowd a kiss and waving both hands.

Correa opened the scoring for the hosts in the 33rd minute.

Allowed to drift in from the right flank while retaining possession, a meandering Vitolo run created the opportunity for his team-mate to break the deadlock, Correa cleverly cutting the ball onto his right foot to fire a low drive beyond visiting goalkeeper Oier Olazabal.

Simeone's confidence was clear but Torres had the final say, the veteran sweeping home an instinctive volley from Correa's cross to wrap up a routine win.
