Lemar happy as Atletico Madrid fight-back to thump Cadiz

Atletico Madrid fought back to score four goals after halftime and earn a 4-1 win at Cadiz on Sunday that put them second in the LaLiga standings.

Thomas Lemar, Antoine Griezmann, Angel Correa and Matheus Cunha were all on target as Atletico won when scoring four or more for the first time in all competitions this season.

Cadiz scored their only goal to make it 3-1 late in the second half, following a shocking mistake from goalkeeper Jan Oblak. They are still winless at home this season.

Atletico have 29 points from 14 games, four points behind leaders Real Madrid after the win against Sevilla.

Atletico are level on points with former leaders Real Sociedad, who lost their first league game in more then three months on Sunday against Espanyol (1-0).

"We needed a win like this to build up momentum, to boost our confidence," Lemar told reporters. "We know we have a great team and we wanted to show the fans what we are capable of."
