Atletico Madrid has been unbeaten in their last six matches since they fell to a 0-3 loss to Villarreal back in December. The team has only moved one spot up to fifth place in the overall standings, though, with the top four squads retaining their positions.

Los Colchoneros put a stop to two straight drawn matches by blanking newly-promoted side CD Leganes, 2-0, last Saturday also at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, as per Goal.

Spanish striker Fernando Torres was the man of the match for head coach Diego Simeone's squad as he scored the game's two goals to lead Atleti in the much-needed win.

Torres broke the game's deadlock in the 15th minute with a close-range right-footer following a set piece situation. He then doubled their lead with another right-footed shot in the 51st minute with the assist coming from Argentine forward Angel Correa with a through ball.

Meanwhile, Celta Vigo played their most recent La Liga match on Jan. 28 after their Feb. 5 fixture with Real Madrid was postponed because the Balaídos Stadium, the scheduled game's venue, was damaged by a storm.

The Célticos defeated Leganes as well, 2-0, on Jan. 28 on the road at the Butarque Stadium for their third win in the last four rounds, via ESPN.

Spanish midfielder Alvaro Lemos opened the scoring in the 32nd minute before Swede forward John Guidetti doubled the lead with a successful penalty kick in the 66th.

Head coach Eduardo Berizzo's side is now 10th in the 20-team Spanish top flight table, 17 points above the relegation zone and only five points below Villarreal and the final Europa League qualifying spot for next season.
