Eibar 0 Atletico Madrid 1: Lemar strikes late at Ipurua

Atletico Madrid's Thomas Lemar

Without the suspended Diego Costa and Antoine Griezmann, it was Thomas Lemar who scored a late winner for Atletico Madrid at Eibar.

Thomas Lemar scored late as Atletico Madrid kept their slim LaLiga title hopes alive with a 1-0 win at Eibar.

Atletico seemed set to be held at Ipurua on Saturday and hand runaway leaders Barcelona a further advantage, but instead they cut the gap to six points.

Marko Dmitrovic made fine saves to deny Angel Correa and Diego Godin but the Eibar goalkeeper could do nothing about Atleti’s 85th-minute winner.

After a spell of head tennis, Nikola Kalinic sent Koke clear in the right channel and his low cross was tapped in at the back post by Lemar.
