Angel Correa delighted as his Atletico Madrid double earns win against Rayo Vallecano

Angel Correa struck twice as Atletico Madrid won 2-0 against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

The result ended a run of four consecutive defeats by Atletico.

Atleti leapfrogged Rayo in the standings and are now fourth with 32 points from 19 matches. Rayo is fifth, with 30 points. Real Madrid, who lost at Getafe earlier, leads LaLiga with 46 points from 20 games.

Correa stepped in for the absence of Antoine Griezmann and Joao Felix and led Atletico to a victory where they dominated from start to finish.

"After four consecutive losses, we needed this win," man-of-the-match Correa told reporters.

"It's a great way to start the year because we won playing well, dominating; we are really happy with the attitude and the result."
