Atletico Madrid on Saturday won 2-0 at home against Getafe in the 18th round of Spain’s La Liga, putting pressure on league leaders Barcelona.
Angel Correa opened the scoring for Atletico just 18 minutes into the match. Atletico forward Diego Costa found the back of the net in his return to La Liga, after having left English Premier League defending champions Chelsea, where he played from 2013 to 2017, reports Efe.
Costa scored the second goal for Atletico in the 68th minute, his first goal in La Liga this season.
However, he was sent off after being shown a second yellow card following his exuberant celebration of the goal with fans.
Following this win, Atletico hold the second position in La Liga with 39 points, six points behind Barcelona, who are set to host Levante on Sunday.
Atletico continue to chase Barcelona after their first victory in 2018, while Getafe, having suffered seventh defeat this season, remain in the eighth position with 23 points.
