Diego Simeone hails 'iconic' Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres

Atletico Madrid GettyAtletico Madrid are firm favourites to beat Arsenal in the semi-finals

Fernando Torres started bidding farewell to Atletico Madrid on Sunday by scoring in a 3-0 win over Levante that strengthened his team's hold on second place in the Spanish league.

The 34-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and announced recently he was to leave Madrid for the second time in his career.

Torres scored the third goal after 77 minutes with the veteran forward now on his farewell tour with the club.

Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague has provided three reasons Arsenal will not beat Atletico Madrid in their Europa League semi-final.

Elsewhere in Spain on Sunday, John Guidetti's early goal gave Alaves a 1-0 win at Eibar, lifting them up to 15th in La Liga.

The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons but haven't challenged for the Premier League or Champions League titles.

Bryce Harper had the ideal celebration for his broken-bat home run
Santangelo were amazed that Harper was able to hit a homer with just a few inches of the bat left in his hands. That ball left Harper's bat - his broken bat, I should say - at 99.2 miles per hour and it traveled 406 feet.

This was something of a free hit for Levante, who stay 17th, five points clear of the relegation zone.

"Barcelona's season is tremendous", Simeone said.

The France international's fierce strike from Sime Vrsaljko's volleyed cross saw him on the scoresheet for a fourth successive league outing, while also taking his tally for the season to 26 in all competitions.

Torres enjoyed the biggest cheer of the afternoon and followed his brilliant finish by blowing the crowd a kiss and waving both hands.

Allowed to drift in from the right flank while retaining possession, a meandering Vitolo run created the opportunity for his team-mate to break the deadlock, Correa cleverly cutting the ball onto his right foot to fire a low drive beyond visiting goalkeeper Oier Olazabal. 'I hope that goal isn't my last'.

That was his last significant contribution, before making way for Torres just before the hour, and Koke was also spared the last 30 minutes, replaced by Gabriel Fernandez.
