Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Kevin Gameiro
Kevin Gameiro is the third most prolific French player in La Liga history with 52 goals. Karim Benzema has 123 and Antoine Griezmann 102

Atletico Madrid extend their unbeaten start in La Liga as Kevin Gameiro scored his first goal of the season to beat Celta Vigo.

The France striker hooked home from close range after the hosts failed to clear Saul's corner.

Celta were unlucky not to score, Iago Aspas hitting the bar with a free-kick and John Guidetti forcing a last-minute Jan Oblak save with a backheel.

Atletico briefly moved to third, before Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Eibar.

Leganes are fifth after beating Athletic Bilbao 1-0, with Claudio Beauvue scoring the goal.

Sixth-placed Villarreal beat Las Palmas 4-0.

Cedric Bakambu, Mario Gaspar, Ximo Navarro - into his own net - and Nicola Sansone were the goalscorers.
