Atletico leads in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona stumble


Dhaka- Atletico Madrid won early Sunday and then watched a humbling defeat for Barcelona, and yet another disappointing draw by Real Madrid, to lead the Spanish league for the first time this season.Atletico dominated in a 2-0 win at Valencia, while Madrid drew 1-1 at home with Eibar for its fourth-consecutive draw, and Barcelona
conceded three goals in 11 minutes in the first half in a 4-3 loss at Celta Vigo. The crucial fourth goal was an embarrassing mistake by goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.The results left Diego Simeone’s team in the lead with 15 points from seven matches. Madrid also has 15 points, but an inferior goal difference.Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, stayed on 13 points after its second league loss. It is one point behind third-placed Sevilla, which defeated Alaves 2-1 on Saturday.”There is still a lot of league left and it’s all tight at the top,” Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said. “All teams are losing points. It says a lot about the level of this league.”
