Carrasco damaged his right clavicle and had to be replaced just 16 minutes after coming on as a substitute for Nico Gaitan, with Fernando Torres replacing the Belgium worldwide at the Vicente Calderon.

Atletico winger Yannick Carrasco was forced off in the 72nd minute with a sprained collarbone after clashing with Villarreal defender Antonio Rukavina, putting his participation in next week's Champions League semi-final first leg at Real Madrid in doubt.

Third placed Atletico Madrid face Villarreal later on Tuesday while leaders Barcelona host Osasuna on Wednesday and second-placed Real Madrid, who are level on 75 points with the Catalans, visit Deportivo La Coruna.

"We're well positioned to fight for the place we've been duelling for with Sevilla in a very entertaining why". The ball didn't need to go in.

Granada are 19th on 20 points with four games left of the campaign, seven points adrift of Leganes, who occupy the final place outside the relegation zone and who can extend their lead over Adams' side to 10 when they visit Las Palmas on Wednesday.

Diego Simeone's side were looking to keep themselves clear ahead of Sevilla in the battle for Champions League qualification but failed to make possession count and were made to pay when Italy forward Soriano converted a cross from fellow substitute Cedric Bakambu with eight minutes left.

"I see it [this season] like every year, we are competing well both in our football and our physicality and I hope that we keep that up against a good footballing side with a very deep 4-4-2 formation that capitalises on opponents' mistakes with very good forwards".

The Yellow Submarine opted for a change in the 64th minute, as Adrian Lopez made way for Roberto Soriano as they pushed for a winning goal.

¡Tres puntazos clave en el Calderón! "Normally they wait for you and hit you on the counter", the forward said. Today we lost, this is part of the sport. "They have a lot of quality and players who can cause problems but the team knew how to suffer and we're happy with the result".

"We've shown all season we can beat top teams if we are at 100 per cent".
