Diego Godin and Kevin Gameiro scored within two minutes of each other as Atletico Madrid bounced back from their derby disappointment with a 3-0 La Liga victory at Osasuna.
Diego Simone’s men were defeated 3-0 by rivals Real Madrid at home last weekend, seven days after losing against Real Sociedad, but they got back on track domestically with a comfortable win on the road.
An early penalty save from Jan Oblak prevented them from falling behind, and Godin — on a header following a corner — and Gameiro found the net in the 36th and 37th minute.
Yannick Carrasco then slotted slotting under Nauzet Perez in stoppage time to leave struggling Osasuna in the relegation zone.
Ibai and Victor Camarasa struck first-half goals as Alaves recorded a surprise 2-0 victory at high-flying Villarreal.
Winger Ibai slotted in from close range with eight minutes played after Deyverson’s header came back off the left post following a right-wing cross from Edgar.
Villarreal, who were fourth going into the game, fell further behind when midfielder Camarasa, on loan from Levante, doubled the advantage in the 19th minute, seizing on some woeful defending by Argentine Mateo Musacchio to poke the ball past Sergio Asenjo.
