Real stage comeback at Betis, Costa strikes in Atletico win

DIEGO COSTA and Kevin Gameiro's second-half goals were enough to continue Atletico Madrid's winning run as they ground out a 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao at home.

Costa had another chance just before the hour when he met a flick from Koke, but the striker could only head over the crossbar from close range. Griezmann fed his fellow France worldwide with a weighted pass, and Gameiro slid home a low shoot for his seventh of the season.

Costa then wrapped up the points late on, taking advantage of a mistake by young Leones defender Unai Nunez to race clear and slam his shot into the net at the near post.

Atletico have five wins and a draw from last six home games against Athletic, conceding just twice, while Los Leones have not won any of their last five in La Liga and will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano without their two experienced forwards, Aritz Aduriz and Raul Garcia.

The Rojiblanco boss told the postgame news conference that playing Costa and Gameiro together in attack was possible when Griezmann took up a more withdrawn playmaking role.

World oil prices up
The American Petroleum Institute (API) is set to state its forecast regarding the USA crude supply on Wednesday. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index, a gauge of the currency against 10 major peers, rose as much as 0.6 percent.

Griezmann's 200 million Euro Atletico release clause is reportedly set to drop to 100 million Euro at the end of this season, making a potential deal for any and all suitors markedly more realistic.

Jose-Maria Gimenez's stretching volley, which flew a yard wide, was the nearest Atletico came to scoring in a first period which lacked any real rhythm.

"Our pitch is big and with our intention to keep pressing, we leave space in behind where Williams can cause danger with his pace". Today Juanfran did not play, the other day it was Thomas. "He wanted to book me and that's all".

Simeone also vented his frustration at his side's lack of penalties this season: Atletico are yet to have been awarded one this season and Costa saw appeals turned down in the first-half having gone down in the box. "There's no use thinking about it any more".
