Atletico Madrid 4-2 Malaga

Kevin Gameiro
Atletico Madrid forward Kevin Gameiro took his tally to five goals in La Liga this season

Kevin Gameiro and Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco scored twice as Atletico Madrid beat Malaga despite playing a third of the game with 10 men.

Carrasco's fine individual effort put the hosts ahead and Gameiro added a second with a crisp low strike.

Sandro Ramirez pulled one back for Malaga courtesy of a superb free-kick before Gameiro struck again.

Although Stefan Savic was sent off and Ignacio Camacho reduced the deficit, Carrasco sealed victory late on.

Malaga had Gonzalo Castro sent off in the 89th minute for a second yellow card.

Diego Simeone's Atletico are in third place - three points behind city rivals Real Madrid, who are top of La Liga following their 4-1 win over Alaves earlier on Saturday.
