Laliga leaders Atletico lose to Sevilla

162

Islamabad – April 5 (Online): Leaders Atletico Madrid suffered a rare La Liga defeat as Marcos Acuna’s header earned Sevilla victory.
Argentina defender Acuna was unmarked when he nodded a cross by former Manchester City player Jesus Navas past Jan Oblak.
Oblak had earlier saved Lucas Ocampos’ penalty after Saul Niguez brought down Ivan Rakitic.
Atletico, chasing a first league title since 2014, are three points clear at the top with nine games left.
Third-placed Barcelona will move one point behind Atletico if they beat 16th-placed Real Valladolid on Monday (20:00 BST).
