LaLiga: Atletico Madrid extends lead to eight points with hard-fought win against Granada

Angel Correa of Atletico de Madrid celebrates with teammate Marcos Llorente after scoring his team's second goal during the La Liga Santander match between Granada CF and Atletico de Madrid at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on February 13, 2021 in Granada, Spain.

Atletico Madrid triumphed 2-1 away at Granada in a tight, competitive match at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes on Saturday afternoon. 

After a stalemate first half, Marcos Llorente gave the visitors the lead just after the hour mark with a superb rasping left-footed effort, but three minutes later Manchester City loanee Yangel Herrera poked in from close range to equalise.

Angel Correa then restored the away advantage, Llorente turning provider before the Argentine's drive deflected past Rui Silva, with Diego Simeone's side holding on to move eight points clear of second-placed Real Madrid with a game in hand.
