Atletico Madrid returned to La Liga with a 2-0 victory over Huesca 24 hours after withdrawing from the Europa League.

Real Madrid replaced neighbors Atletico at the conference after a 3-0 win over Cadiz on Wednesday.

On Thursday, goals from Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco helped Atletico see off a rival Huesca.

Diego Simeone’s side are three points clear at the top with six games remaining.

Atletico had apologized to the fans for causing “confusion” after ending their involvement in a broken European Premier League.

 

The goals of Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco helped Atletico see far from the struggling Huesca.

They are looking for their first La Liga title since 2014 but still have to play their arch-rivals Barcelona away on May 8.

Huesca ranks 18th in the table, one point from safety and six games remaining.

They came close to taking the lead early but Dimitrios Siovas’ close-range shot was saved by Jan Oblak before Argentine striker Correa scored his third goal in two games.

Carrasco added a second when Marcos Llorente finished the match with two assistants.
