Atletico Madrid have gone top with victory over Levante yesterday.

Atletico Madrid have gone top with victory over Levante yesterday.

Diego Costa slammed home a 77th-minute penalty to preserve all three points for Diego Simeone's side, who had gone behind with less than two minutes on the clock and then conceded a second-half equaliser shortly after taking the lead.

Andreas Ivanschitz stunned the Vicente Calderon with an early goal for the visitors, which was eventually cancelled out by a Diego Godin header.

Costa put the hosts ahead two minutes into the second half but Pedro Rios' solo effort on 57 minutes meant Los Rojiblancos required one more goal, which they finally got when Costa fired into the bottom corner from the spot.
