Fernando Torres scored Atletico Madrid’s vital winner away to Villarreal in Wednesday night’s La Liga clash.
Torres capitalised on the defender’s mistake before rounding the keeper and cooly slotting home. The former Chelsea man, who is currently on-loan to Atleti from AC Milan showed glimpses of the past as he humiliated the two Villarreal defenders.
The 31 year old cut back only to witness both the on-rushing Villarreal defenders slide by helplessly. Torres then took a further stride forward before placing home the 74th minute winner.
Atletico Madrid are 6 points ahead of 4th placed Valencia, while they stay 7 points behind Real Madrid, who occupy 2nd. Villarreal remain in 6th, taking up the last of the European places.
