Atletico Madrid go top of the league after win over Valladolid
Atletico Madrid, unbeaten since the start of the Liga season, moved to the top of the table with a 2-0 win over Real Valladolid. Simeone's men now have 26 points and have conceded just two goals in 10 league matches.
France forward Thomas Lemar and Spain midfielder Marcos Llorente scored for Diego Simeone's men, who are among five clubs to remain without a domestic defeat in Europe's main five leagues.
Real Sociedad, who have lost just once in the league this term but now trail Atletico by two points, travel to Deportivo Alaves on Sunday.
Real Madrid and Villarreal are next on 20 points. The former beat Sevilla earlier on Saturday thanks to an own goal by Sevilla keeper Bono while Villarreal host Elche at 18:30 CET on Sunday.
Cadiz are in fifth after a shock 2-1 victory over Barcelona in Saturday's final game of the day. It is worth noting that Atletico Madrid have a game in hand on Sociedad, Real Madrid and Villarreal and must surely be considered title contenders in what is a thrilling La Liga campaign.
